Anna Goulding a Research Associate at the International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies, Newcastle University. The cross-research council funded project Contemporary Visual Art and Identity Construction – Wellbeing Amongst Older People has led to an ESRC funded follow-on project which aims to translate the research into policy and practice. 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 interest in education, she is keen that research has a practical application and feeds into contemporary gallery education practice, providing quality experiences for users.
