A Woman’s Place Announcements

March 2018:  We are delighted to welcome Jamila Prowse as an intern for A Woman’s Place Project.

Jamila is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Typical Girls, an alternative women’s publication which showcases the work of female creatives. She also works across the arts as a freelancer in roles spanning project management, events management, digital communications, facilitation and curation. In 2016, Jamila was an emerging curator at Brighton Photo Fringe. With a BA in Art History, she is predominantly interested in representation and accessibility within the arts sector.

Jamila will be working with A Woman’s Place over the next few months in the lead up to the installation and launch of A Woman’s Place Knole and on other projects currently being planned.

February 2018: It is with a mixture of great pride and sadness that A Woman’s Place announces that Eliza Gluckman has accepted the role of Senior Curator and Deputy Director of the Government Art Collection starting in April 2018. As a founder Director of A Woman’s Place, and long time collaborator with Lucy Day as Day+Gluckman curatorial partnership the appointment marks the end of a wonderful eleven years together and the beginning of an exciting new phase in Eliza’s career. Eliza will continue as a non-executive director for A Woman’s Place whilst a new co-director is sought. Lucy Day will continue to lead on the Artistic programming and Development of A Woman’s Place including the launch of the six new commissions at Knole in May 2018.
