Liz Falconbridge

Liz Falconbridge studied Art at Canterbury College of Art in the late 1960s, followed by a degree in Philosophy at University College London and an MA in Aesthetics and the Theory of Art at the University of Essex. She worked as Research Assistant for Lady Marina Vaizey, Art Critic for the Sunday Times, was a Visiting Lecturer at Goldsmith’s College, School of Art and designed bespoke knitwear as a partner in a knitting machine company. Returning to Norfolk in the early 80s, Liz had two children and returned to work at King’s Lynn Arts Centre in 1990, where she is currently Arts & Education Manager, having seen the venue through a maelstrom of changes over 18 years. Liz’s raison d’etre for her work has been to encourage access and involvement, using the exhibition programme as a springboard for education across the curriculum and for all ages and abilities, with a specialism in marginalised young people.
