The new Editor is Amanda Parker, a former BBC programme-maker, journalist and communications and campaigns lead who’s created campaigns across film, the arts and education, including for Creative England, ABRSM and Directors UK.

The team is also joined by news journalist Adele Richmond, who was previously at The Press and The Nelson Mail, part of New Zealand news group Stuff. She takes over the role from Christy Romer, who has left to write for Global Shapers in Madrid.

Hill remains part of the ArtsProfessional team as editorial consultant, whilst she pursues a new project in community journalism.
