Joining Creative Lives in 2020, Duncan brings with him a range of experience from across the arts, heritage, educational and creative industries sectors, with a particular focus on community development and place-based working.

During his career, he has worked with a broad range of organisations including community and voluntary groups, third sector groups, educational institutions, public and governmental bodies, to name but a few. He has also been lucky enough to serve on the board, or as part of advisory groups, for several national arts and heritage organisations.

With a background as a visual artist and arts administrator Duncan has a passion for participation and the benefits of working with others. In 2013 he became the founding Director of Citizen Curator, a charity examining history, identity and creativity in Leith and North Edinburgh.

Duncan is a long-time Leith resident, now with his partner and two daughters. He is also involved in various community campaigns and grassroots networks.
