Spotlight - Education and Engagement Manager Dayle Green

Welbeck is home to a vibrant community, from the estate company staff to our resident artisan makers and our wonderful tenants. Spotlight shines a light on our community: go behind the scenes, get to know us a bit better and discover the lives and work of some of Welbeck’s employees and tenants. Dayle Green has worked at The Harley Gallery for 12 years, initially as a part-time Gallery Assistant before taking on her current position as Education and Engagement Manager in 2012.

 

What is your role?

I work closely with schools, colleges, universities and special interest groups to engage these visitors with our exhibitions programme. This may be delivering workshops to primary schools, planning and facilitating workshops for adults and delivering family activities during school holidays.  I also work on two outreach projects, one is with Bassetlaw Mind providing ceramic workshops to their service users and the other is with a local primary school to develop their arts programme. 

 

What is a typical day like for you? 

Every day is different which I love, but a typical day for me would be spent either at my desk or out and about with a visiting group. 

 

What do you like to do on your days off?

I love to be active so maybe go for a walk in the peak district or the gym. I also enjoy spending time with my husband, family and friends.
