Emma Leach

Emma Leach is one of our Associate Curators and is currently working with artist Andrew Merritt on Intertidal Allotment.

She has a background as a visual artist, having studied at Kent Institute of Art & Design in Canterbury. For over 15 years she has been helping artists realise their ideas. She enjoys inhabiting other conceptual frameworks, using curiosity, sensitivity and humour to deliver works that are in tune with each artist’s ideas. Projects have included performance, sound, dance, film, sculpture and installation as well as the productive spaces where these disciplines meet.

Working with Cement Fields, she has curated programmes for five editions of Whitstable Biennale and has developed projects for North Kent with artists Esther Collins, Andy Merritt and Kieren Reed.
