Rebecca di Corpo – Bath Spa University

Personal statement

Rebecca has been managing strategic projects and partnerships with and for the Higher Education sector for over twenty years. Such programmes are always externally facing, cross-disciplinary in nature, governed by multiple stakeholders, operating across sectors and geographical boundaries. More often than not, they are described as ‘flagship’, ‘transformational’ or ‘change’ projects.

The Centre for Applied Humanities is her latest multi-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder initiative with a mission to place the humanities at the heart of decision-making.

The Centre not only exists to support and enable applied research for Bath Spa’s academic and external community, but to actively contribute to and shape the evolving Arts and Humanities policy landscape.

With a background in performing arts, her transition from creative practice to (creative) management stems from her time working in regional cultural development in the north of England when she moved from Sydney, Australia to the UK in 2004.
