Elizabeth Godber

Funding Manager

“After studying creative writing at Hull University (BA), Leeds University (MA) and now as a PhD, and setting up my own theatre company, I am acutely aware of the difficulties of starting out in the creative industries as a young northern artist. I have previously been funded by Arts Council England, City Councils, Building societies, local businesses and trusts and funds in both the charitable and commercial sector, and I am excited to share my knowledge of finding funding and supporting work with students of this foundation. I am also passionate about creating accessible work, having recently been working in the field of dementia-awareness work, and I am hoping to continue to work with young people moving into the industry who are particularly interested in issue-based work in the Hull and East Yorkshire region.”
