Chloe Maitland: Community Projects Officer

Chloe joined the Kirkgate team in September 2021 and is enjoying getting to know the team and community that she is working with. She found out about Kirkgate during her time on the Changing Culture Programme, which is a course in leadership in the arts and cultural sector. The Kirkgate was her placement working on this programme.

She has been undertaking a research project to investigate how Kirkgate can better serve the community. Chloe loves animals, art and culture, travelling and learning about the world. She draws and paints and loves experimenting with colour and light in these mediums. Chloe moved to Cockermouth from Carlisle in 2020 to pursue a career in the arts.
