Holly has recently joined Demsoc as a Project Assistant based in the Manchester office as she is passionate about engaging diverse audiences into the democratic process.

Previous to her appointment, she volunteered at the People’s History Museum, an institution that equally champions democracy. Her role as a Business Development assistant involved creating social media campaigns, such as ‘Sponsor a Radical’ Twitter campaign, and supporting events, such as a screening of Peterloo, in order to raise the profile of the museum and increase youth engagement.

Holly graduated with BA (Hons) Art History from the University of Manchester. Her academic interests range from socially engaged art to civic engagement with urban areas.
