Manager

Jill Cole is Director of Northern Heartlands, the Durham Great Place Scheme, where she manages a small team delivering a programme of arts, heritage and cultural activity across south and west Durham.  Prior to this role, she had a freelance career in the arts, managing her own arts management business as well as delivering community arts activities.  She was the Artistic Director of a very successful youth theatre based in the Witham before its re-development, and most recently worked for Arts Council England as a Relationship Manager for Theatre.   Originally from the southeast, Jill made her home in Teesdale in 1990 and brought up her 2 children here.  She has a long history with the Witham as a user, a committee member (prior to re-development), a tenant (she has twice rented office space in the building) and as an audience member.
