Alicia teaches Arts Management and Urban Renewal (option).
Alicia has worked in the contemporary visual arts for well over a decade and has a range of expertise and experience in curatorial practice, gallery education and community engagement and arts and cultural policy. Alicia has had a growing involvement in her two most recent positions as project manager for the Bristol Visual Arts Consortium, and prior to that as head of education and public events at the Whitechapel Gallery, in the role of artists and arts organizations within the broader ecosystem of a community and the way that this has shifted and expanded over the past 40 or more years.
Alicia is doing a collaborative PhD with Birkbeck and SPACE. She will write the first fully documented history on the organisation for which she is examining its evolution, from its formation in 1968 to the present, in relation to urban development, regeneration, community engagement, and arts practice.
