What's the Story?
With 15 years of experience as a strategic leader, project manager and innovation producer, Lindsay Dunbar is a ‘cultural crofter’ nurturing and tending to creative projects in rural areas. Selected as the Creative Scotland Fellow 17/18 for the prestigious Clore Leadership programme, she used this opportunity to explore a values-led process, addressing issues of representation throughout her work, ensuring every voice can be heard and help every project reach it’s potential. She can often be found enthusing about her work with Creative Youth Activist groups in the North of Scotland as part of the Europe-wide Start the Change project.
A busy researcher, she works on projects which focus on the creative industries, specialising in a rural context as well as international approach. She recently completed research on Creative Hubs in Scotland for the British Council and is soon to embark on further research for the Arts and Humanities Research Council into Cultural Leadership on the peripheries of Scotland. An accredited LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator, she is experienced in facilitating workshops and sessions with a variety of people, from industry professionals to community members.
