“I am thrilled at the prospect of working alongside such an established team, and the diverse groups that make up City Arts. As communities are likely to face even more challenges ahead, City Arts will play an increasingly important role in wellbeing, providing creative opportunities of the highest quality for all. We will continue to bring people together, ensuring that the voices of marginalised groups are heard and celebrated through the power of art. The role of Director presents many opportunities for arts and communities, for artists, and for Nottingham. I look forward to working in partnership to create an exciting and sustainable future for City Arts.”

“We are delighted to be welcoming Suzannah to this vital leadership role as we move into an exciting time of development for City Arts. She will be expanding the strategic thinking started by our previous CEO, Madeline Holmes, who moved on last July after a decade at the helm. Suzannah brings an impressive mix of expertise and experience which will benefit City Arts immensely. We wish her every success in her new post.”
