Meet The Team

Programme Manager - Claire Bigley

As Programme Manager my role is to bring together all the many aspects of the Spareparts project and ensure that at every step our community’s, partners and audience’s experience is considered. The role is developmental, allowing creativity and strategy to work side-by-side.

There’s no greater feeling then seeing people engage with the arts, on their doorstep, connecting with an artist or art and for a time being lost in their imagination.

Artistic Director - Jodie Gibson

I’m a Freelance Creative with a keen interest in outdoor arts, social change, collaboration, individual & collective empowerment. A perfect blend for the job as Artistic Director with SpareParts.

I’m inspired by the founding idea behind SpareParts, that transport, heritage, science festivals and arts-festivals can blend together to create an imaginative programme; enhancing the audience experience, whilst offering people from different interest groups, an opportunity to come together in a shared moment.
