Helen Miah

Helen Miah Commissioner for Arts & Culture, Swindon BC

I am passionate about arts, culture, creativity and Swindon.

I've been working for Swindon Borough Council for 11 years in a variety of roles within arts, culture and heritage and am currently leading on the project to build a new Museum & Art Gallery to house Swindon's extraordinary collection of Modern British Art and Studio Ceramics as well as tell the story of Swindon the place. I have also led a number of high profile events and activities for Swindon including: The Big Arts Day, Artsmad and Flux, Swindon Does Arts, Brunel 200 and I was the cultural lead for Radio 1 Big Weekend in Swindon.

I enjoy making things happen and especially promoting local talent and inspiring young people. I started my career as a dance and performing arts teacher and have worked in a variety of schools and colleges including Yeovil College, Cirencester College, New College and Churchfields School.

Please get in touch with me if you think there is anything I can do to help you make your creative dream happen!
