Tom Newman

I’ve worked in arts development for nearly a decade, working for a range of different cultural organisations in the South West. It’s great to be working in a place like Weston – I find the find the people, landscape and strength of community really inspiring.

I’m motivated by working with communities, artists and creatives to break down barriers and create opportunities for everyone to access outstanding cultural experiences and using creativity and culture to promote community activism and positive social change. I’m a strong believer in the power of arts and culture to transform lives and to give a voice to all.

I’m really excited to be part of the Culture Weston team and looking forward to working with all the amazing artists and creatives in Weston to grow an exciting and outward looking creative and cultural ecology.
