Carey has worked within informal arts learning for almost 20 years. She is currently Head of Learning & Participation at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge; prior roles include Head of Education at the South London Gallery, Research Forum Programme Manager at The Courtauld, Learning Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, as well as working across Tate Modern and Tate Britain, project managing an array of large-scale programmes alongside colleagues within Tate Learning.

Working in close consultation with children and young people, families, communities, schools, teachers and wider audiences across a range of contexts, she has acquired extensive experience in building strategic partnerships at local and regional level, devising and implementing learning strategies within the cultural sector and informal education, and supporting arts organisations to cultivate new ways of working in order to achieve their strategic goals, particularly around youth voice and diversity.

Carey believes A New Direction’s values, processes, partnerships, and culture ensure that they work with intent, vision and meaning. As an organisation, they excel at bringing people together, surfacing the voices, questions, research, and relationships that are imperative for developing broader frames of reference within the cultural and youth sectors and feels honoured to have this opportunity to work with A New Direction as a trustee.
