We are delighted to welcome Justiene Boughey to the Arts Development Team in the brand new role of Office Assistant. She has already begun to emerse herself in GAC life, attending a sub-committees’ social event on her first day! Here is a little about Justiene, in her own words:
My name is Justiene, I’m 24 and I grew up in Guernsey. I left the island at 18 to do an Art Foundation and went on to do a Degree in Art and Visual Culture at UWE in Bristol. My work at Uni was varied, but I really enjoyed site specific art, work involving the audience, and anything with a sense of humour! I returned to Guernsey in 2007 to save money for a year’s round the world trip with my partner Dan. We travelled to Canada, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Bali, and South Africa. The last year has been the most amazing experience; we have so many memories to cherish (and photos to organise)! Having gotten travelling out of my system I am pleased to be back on the island amongst family and friends, and I am delighted to be starting my career with the Guernsey Arts Commission.
We will also be joined by another new member of staff in 2010, so watch this space!
