My name is Katherine Brown (photo), Founding Director of Beauty and Utility Arts.
We are a Leicestershire based Arts, Heritage and Health social enterprise developing and managing creative projects and resources with social benefits.
I do some of my best thinking sat in supermarket car parks.
Areas of work and interest within arts, heritage and health include: project management, public health, audience development (from patients to tourists), prevention work, bringing heritage alive via the arts and developing creative approaches to social need.
A good percentage of our work now focuses on older people, intergenerational work, dementia, arts and heritage, Art on Prescription and supporting change within organisations.
In May 2016 we also launched Our Memory Lanes, a new section of the business currently being developed. Our Memory Lanes ® will be a place where we create and share products and resources with social benefits.
In everything we do, we strive to make a difference by paying attention to the basics.
- Listen – Everyone has the right to be listened to, without interruption or judgment. How else would we create a project tailored to your individual needs?
- Learn – Every project is different and learning together through great communication means we get the best outcomes.
- Plan and deliver – Every member of our team is professional, experienced, enthusiastic and prepared. We mix all those ingredients together to make sure your project runs smoothly.
- Evaluate – By using tried and tested evaluation tools we measure our projects to establish outcomes and areas for further work.
- Reflect – Stopping to reflect is a huge part of what we do. It’s how we move forward and improve. I really do spend a lot of time in supermarket car parks!
