Working in collaboration with many associates locally, nationally and internationally, Arts Bournemouth supports and strengthens Bournemouth’s arts community. The vibrant and inspiring scheme brings local artists, musicians and performing talent together to pepper Dorset’s calendar with upbeat events and exhibitions throughout the year, notably the Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival, which takes place every autumn. This popular festival celebrates not only the area’s artistic excellence, but also Bournemouth and Poole’s incredible coastline. As a loyal advocate of Dorset’s art scene, Caron developed the project’s partnership work in its first two years, including crucial funding and media partnership activities. She continues to support the team in procurement for the festival, whether that’s helping with design and print or by simply being a sounding board to thoughts and creative ideas.
