Board Member and Young Board Member special

For our final Connect special, we focus on our flagship volunteering categories, Board Member and Young Board Member of the Year. Since 1988, Arts & Business has connected 5,000 business professionals with cultural organisations throughout the UK as trustees, advisers and volunteers. Here we take a look at the story of Heather Wright from Aardman Animation and her work with Creative Youth Network in Bristol.  

Heather Wright, Executive Producer at Aardman Animations, chairs the board of trustees at Creative Youth Network (CYN) and supports their fundraising programme. For the past 5 years she has brought her cultural and commercial experience to aid the strategic development of CYN. In addition, she brings the Aardman reputation and contacts with her, providing opportunities for young people to learn about a global creative company through the CYN programmes.
