Daksha Patel


I am a freelance artist educator with over 10 years experience of delivering formal and informal education projects using a variety of creative methods in galleries and museums (Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester Museum, Chinese Art Centre, Mid Pennine Arts, Gallery Oldham). I have also worked with patient groups, medical students and consultants in hospitals (Salford Royal teaching hospital, Ninewells hospital, Dundee).



I was contracted as a Manchester agent for Creative Partnerships, a UK government national action research program aimed at supporting young people’s curriculum-based learning using creative methods. I worked with a number of primary and secondary schools across Greater Manchester over 4 years. My role involved supporting senior management teams to develop creative learning action research projects, supporting schools in planning projects and contracting artists, monitoring, managing and evaluating projects.
