Anna Goulding

Anna Goulding has been working on 'Contemporary visual art and identity construction - wellbeing amongst older people', a two-year project funded by the New Dynamics of Ageing Programme.  This led to a follow-on project which aims to develop research-informed arts policy and interventions designed to improve the lives of older people.   

Previous research has focused on the impact of  art gallery educational programmes upon participants in terms of developments to their knowledge and understanding, self-esteem and identity.  With a background in education, she is keen that research has a practical application and feeds into contemporary gallery education practice, providing quality experiences for users.
