Guest Speaker: Claire Somerville, Chief Executive at Babylon ARTS (operated by ADEC)

Claire Somerville is Chief Executive of Babylon ARTS, an independent charity which has been operating in Ely for almost 25 years. Claire joined the organisation last year to a new post, with the aim of building the charity's capacity to do more, and to increase the profile of the work that it does across East Cambridgeshire, Fenland and Forest Heath. With no core funding, Babylon ARTS has to be resourceful and use mix of commercial income, public funding and sponsorship to carry out its work. Babylon ARTS is probably best known locally for the Babylon Gallery and Ely Cinema at the Maltings, but it also runs a variety of creative projects involving thousands of people each year.

Claire will be talking about her specific plans for Babylon ARTS.
