Ellie Allen: FEAST Programme Manager
I joined FEAST as their Programme Manager in August 2023 with big shoes to fill, as only the 2nd Programme Manager in FEAST’s 15-year history. I spend the majority of my time supporting artists and individuals through the funding process. FEAST funding is highly competitive. So I help artists and individuals ensure the selection panel has a clear picture of their project. Having joined from the financial services sector, this is all new ground to me. It is exciting to speak to so many creative and inspiring people.
I work part-time at FEAST, and in my other life, I am a caller for Cornwall’s leading ceilidh band, Splann. I was recently initiated as a bard in Gorsedh Kernow for promoting Cornish culture through dance.
Izzy Bianchini: Arts Lab Manager
I manage the Arts Lab programme, a creative wellbeing programme for young people. We fund and link up artist with schools/youth groups to make projects happen. I joined the FEAST family in 2022 having moved from the Barbican Centre in London working as a Producer for the creative learning team.
My background is in youth arts – I have a music degree and am a qualified Youth Worker. I work part-time for FEAST, and do other freelance roles on the side in youth work, programme management and consultancy. When I’m not at work you can find me exploring Cornwall on two wheels or taking five in a heather bush. I love FEAST for the people and the ideas; it’s a joy to work with so many creative gems and create opportunities for more young people to enjoy the arts.
Jack Morrison: Director of Creative Communities
As Director of Creative Communities I am tremendously excited to be able to work across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly with all of our projects and all of our programmes, which includes FEAST, CFylm, Carn to Cove, Arts Lab and Extraordinary Art in Everyday Places. It is the best job in the world.
Taryn Harris: Creative Communities Administrator
I joined FEAST as their Administrator in the summer of 2021 after working for Kneehigh as their Senior Administrator for four and a half years. My time at Kneehigh gave me amazing opportunities to engage with communities and artists across Cornwall and beyond. In 2019 I managed the Front of House operations for their final Asylum season on the beach at Carlyon Bay, and in spring of 2021 I co-ordinated the activity for their final project, the Random Acts of Art. Now I am very pleased to join FEAST and be part of the Creative Communities team at Creative Kernow, where it’s a real joy to be helping make amazing things happen in the heart of Cornwall and Isles of Scilly’s communities. This is a picture of me dressed in Swedish colours for the Italian and Swedish bar at FEAST’s Fun Palace on the Krowji Splatt event in 2022.
Imogen Weatherly: Creative Communities Marketing & Engagement Manager
I love spreading the word about our work, opportunities, and the brilliant projects, organisations and individuals who we support.
