Chris Huxley and Crystal Johnson have been appointed to carry out the work. Chris was recently in charge at Bridport Arts Centre in West Dorset and Crystal is well known throughout the region from her work with Arts & Business.  Both Chris and Crystal bring a wealth of arts management experience to the project.

They will work with the Jurassic Coast Team as much as possible over the next year. Their work follows on from the publication of the Jurassic Coast Arts Strategy ( the Jurassic Coast is the only WHS to have such a strategy) which will form the bedrock of the unfolding Arts Programme.

Later this year, Chris and Crystal will run a series of “Dialogue” session along the coast to help keep everyone up to date with developments.

The contract is jointly funded by Arts Council England (South West), Dorset and Devon County Councils. For further details, or to join the Jurassic Coast Arts mailing list please contact crystal@jurassiccoast.com or telephone 01308 426562.
