Our Team

We have first-rate team of highly experienced heritage and arts practitioners.

As you'll see below, the skills of the team are rich and varied, and we pride

ourselves on an empathetic and inclusive approach to all our work.

Dave Angel

Dave is a composer, musician and heritage worker who has created and managed numerous community projects over the years. Notable examples include The Working Men's Clubs of Doncaster, Memories of Armthorpe and Rossington and Stories from Doncaster's Coal Mines (oral history and multimedia projects).

Recently, Dave has been working with Louth Navigation Trust, curating their travelling display exhibition.

Dave has a degree in Music, an MA in Oral History, and is currently researching a PhD, using creative practice to investigate the emotional experiences of people who have been displaced by flooding in South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

Dave is particularly interested in the use of digital storytelling as a means of engaging marginalised people in uncovering their own heritage.

Lucy Lumb

Lucy is a visual arts producer with over twenty years’ experience in the creative sector. She builds strong working relationships with artists, communities and partners to deliver projects including permanent and temporary commissions, wellbeing initiatives, festivals and artist residencies. Lucy is interested in creating projects that are owned and celebrated by their communities in public spaces, rural locations, community centres, heritage sites and healthcare settings. She is passionate about equity of access to creativity and culture for all people, of all abilities, ages and backgrounds. Inspired by collaborating with artists in unusual locations and with new communities, her benchmark of success is when those that think art is ‘not for them’ turn this around to become advocates for creativity at all levels. Alongside her freelance practice, Lucy is the Visual Arts Development Co-ordinator at the Hub in Sleaford, Lincolnshire (NPO).
Highlighted projects include: RiverLight Festival in Sleaford (2022), Boston Buoys Trail for Transported in
Boston, 2021 (Creative people and Places Scheme) and becoming Co-Director of Vessel Projects in 2021, a
new creative venture with artist Nicki Jarvis, to deliver an international creative community project
‘Envelope-BREV’ for SO Festival (NPO) and Public Art Producer for Hull Primary Care Trust (2005-2014).

Jayne Cooper

Jayne is an artist, performer and educator whose practice is rooted in painting. Jayne studied painting at the
Glasgow School of
Art, and has an MA in Fine Art from the University of Lincoln (2021). She has recently been
awarded the Claire Fances Peasnall Memorial Award for Painting by the St Hugh’s Foundation for the Arts.
She has had several solo exhibitions, most recently with General Practice and The Notice Board in Lincolnshire, and exhibited widely throughout the UK, including the BP Portrait Awards. Jayne has been Artist-in-Residence at a school in Sheffield for fifteen years, using the visual arts as a powerful vehicle to develop language skills, literacy and relationships with families and the wider community.
Her most recent work Crinoline Lady (I wanted to be you) is a multi-disciplinary installation and performance
piece, encompassing music, spoken work, sculptural objects and paintings. The installation investigates the
relationship between painting as image and painting as object. Utilising the narrative potential of the overlooked around us, Jayne’s paintings draw out connections, both real and imagined. Alongside her paintings, homespun ‘accessories’ to her paintings are cack-handedly displayed, and may function as footnote, appendage or narrative prop.
Jayne created the Viewing Chair as a platform to allow multiple, interchangeable paintings to co-exist and be viewed. It is her most extravagant ‘painting accessory’ to date. Sometimes the painting on the wall becomes an accessory to the object! This moment of tension presents an axis for change in the balance of power, challenging historical perceptions of painting’s hierarchy. 

Lynsey Allet

Lynsey has worked as a filmmaker, video editor, creative practitioner and festival workshop producer, for the last twenty years, working in the UK and Australia. Lynsey's work includes the HLF funded short documentary Kingstreeters and oral history project telling stories of Great Yarmouth's most famous street; Jack meets Jack - a collaboration with artist Leonie Rhodes and Australian actor Jack Charles and very recent work with artist Rhea Quien on the Dance of Light project, exploring the representation of synaesthesia through moving light images. In her career as a multimedia creative practitioner, Lynsey has engaged with hundreds of young people, often from vulnerable backgrounds, using film, animation and sound as ways of artistic and therapeutic expression. Some of this work resulted in the Arts Award qualification for the young people and Lynsey worked for the Arts Council, overseeing regional coordination of the Arts Award for the East region, for a time.

 

In her home town of Louth, Lynsey has been involved with the Zero Degrees Festival, screening the documentary Oxide Ghosts, and has been part of its sponsorship committee. She has also worked with the Louth Navigation Trust on site managing their Culture on the Canal festivals and has been involved in volunteer canal clearing work around the Trust, over the last few years. 

 

Lynsey has a BA Hons. in Film and English from UEA.

 

Lynsey is passionate about story-telling. She has worked with the Byron Bay International Film Festival for a number of years. When in Australia, she coordinated their workshops and panels, and is currently part of their remote submissions team. She has also worked at the Sheffield DocFest, as a volunteer in the Alternate Realities exhibition, helping people discover immersive new ways to engage with story-telling.
