David Gilbert

Development Manager

David has developed and delivered exhibitions, programmes and projects in the visual arts, working for organisations and freelance in galleries, in public spaces, in a site-responsive manner and within heritage sites and festivals. He has also led organisations of varying sizes and kinds – some like Creative Partnerships working across sectors, and others like The Art House having buildings and studio space, with artist development at the core of their purpose. David has raised substantial funding throughout his professional career to support organisations and projects, from ACE through RFO/NPO, Capital and G4A Lottery funding, Trusts and Foundations, and sponsorship from private sector companies.

“Above all I am passionate about creating opportunities for artists. That is the primary reason why I do what I do, and what has motivated me for the last 20 years..”
