Talk to Tania about our programmes in cities across England

Tania joined the British Council in November 2018 as Cities Programmes Lead for the England and Global Cities team.

As part of her role, Tania works across our Arts and Education, Youth and Skills portfolios to coordinate programmes in key cities in England and supports the development of their international cultural relations strategies. For example, this includes leading on the British Council’s international partnership with Coventry City of Culture 2021 and delivering programmes like Transforming Narratives, which supports Birmingham towards achieving its aspiration of becoming a leading international centre for contemporary South Asian art.

Prior to this, Tania was Partnerships and Collaborative Programme at the Science and Industry Museum, where she built and developed strategic partnerships with local, national and international cultural and science organisations to develop and deliver creative programming for Manchester Science Festival.

She has also worked for educational charity Teach First and multi-artform cultural venues The Lowry and Contact. In her spare time, Tania enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, live music and the theatre, socialising with friends and going on expeditions around the world.
