Announcing Lizzie Graham, Metroland’s new Programmes Curator.

We’re excited to announce Lizzie Graham as our new Programmes Curator.

Lizzie, as a curator and facilitator, has joined the Metroland team to curate our artist development programmes, including Peer-to-Peer and Metroland Young Associates.

Image shows Lizzie, a young white woman sitting on an orange plastic chair, apparently within a larger circle of seated people. She appears to be engaged in a discussion with someone, looking intently off-screen.

Having previously worked as the Associate Civic Curator at Serpentine, where she worked connecting artists and communities through long term residency programmes, we are thrilled to have Lizzie joining our team at Metroland!

About Lizzie’s practice
