Emma was a 2017 Fellow. She completed her frontline placement with East London charity, City Gateway and her consulting project with Origin Housing. Her mentor was Celia Hannon.
Emma took up the Year Here fellowship following her experience working for an NGO initiative in Uganda. Their dependency on grants sparked her interest in the potential of business to be a powerful agent of social change. Prior to this she worked in a creative studio, recognising the importance of storytelling to bring transparency to a brand’s supply chain. Emma combined this interest with her passion for the visual arts to co-found Art Thou in 2016. This project has entailed interviewing artists to explore their influences and processes; revealing the narrative at the core of what they do to consumers.
