Niamh Bell joined the team in November 2022 after graduating from the University of Leeds with a degree in Fine Art.
Niamh has a creative background in design, events and project management, marketing, and administration, and developed a passion for performance art from a young age through dance and musical training. While at school, Niamh was introduced to opportunities that have informed her love of the creative arts today, so is greatly inspired by the delivery of the Learning & Development team at Phoenix Dance Theatre.
She currently volunteers in the Choir of Leeds Minster, having been a Choral Scholar there during her studies, and was previously a chorister in Birmingham Cathedral Choir. Her artistic practice explores the interactions between light and sound, often involving performance, and is fascinated by the creative activity within the Phoenix studio.
Niamh is eager to learn from, and contribute to, an organisation that engages young people in the creative arts, making a notable difference in not only the region, but also the sector.
