Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Paula Dower

As well as working part-time for DASH Paula is also a painter and photographer, her usual subjects are horses and the natural world. She lives in Wellington with her husband, daughter and two cats.

Paula thinks that DASH makes a difference by creating opportunities for artists, bringing people together through workshops in the county and extending reach of DASH by creating partnerships with other cultural and disability organisations.

"Working for DASH is incredibly fulfilling. Creating new projects, fundraising and managing them can be stressful at times, but it is always rewarding."
