head of Learning and Participation, Pitt Rivers Museum
Andrew is manager of the Learning and Participation team and previously managed Education at the Pitt Rivers Museum for the past seventeen years. Over that time, he has worked with a huge range of audiences, from schools and families to universities and community groups. The joy of working in a museum is how people learn from physical objects, and the stories and creativity that this encourages. His background is in history and education, but the collections of the Pitt Rivers have changed that focus towards the creative arts. Andrew is an active artist interested in life drawing, street drawing and landscapes. He also has a strong commitment to his local community and is actively involved in community arts in East Oxford.
