Poppy Irwin

Summary of my current role
As Events and Communications Coordinator I support the development and implementation of our yearly postgraduate events and activities programme, as well as maintaining our supportive Postgraduate Community through the GSA networks, community projects and sports provision.

Previous Experience
In 2020 I completed my MA in Arts and Cultural Management, having worked with a range of arts organisations on events and marketing strategies. I have since worked in academic and pastoral support for students, as well as researching Equality, Diversity and Inclusion practices in higher education.

Fun Information
I’d say these activities are fun, but you might disagree?! I have a bedlington terrier whom I love very much and spend most of my spare time with on long country and beach walks. I’m also an avid gardener and music lover, so you will either find me surrounded by roses and wildflowers in my garden or at the front of the stage in my local music venues.
