Claire Bowdler | Arts Marketing and Audience Development
I’m Claire, a passionate freelance arts marketing and audience development specialist based in Cumbria. My work is an exhilarating blend of creativity and strategy, and I enjoy immersing myself in a diverse range of projects.
From crafting captivating campaigns to developing ambassador schemes, from designing targeted social media strategies to shaping comprehensive marketing and communications plans, I enjoy bringing the arts to life for audiences in a variety of communities.
Current clients include The National Youth Orchestra, National Youth Ballet, King’s Lynn Festival, and theatre company, Notnow Collective. I’ve also had the opportunity to work on audience development and marketing projects for organisations including Luton Culture, Cambridge Corn Exchange, Bloomsbury Festival, and NW Live Arts, among many others. Each project gives me a chance to push the boundaries, break new ground, and bring the arts to a wider audience.
Before venturing into the world of freelancing, I was the Marketing Director at Britten Sinfonia for nearly a decade. Prior to that, I worked at artsdepot, City of London Sinfonia, and the Norfolk & Norwich Festival, honing my skills and deepening my knowledge of marketing and communications.Claire Bowdler
