Brunswick Arts

Whilst at Brunswick Arts, Scott Lidgett was involved in projects such as launching the Baltic contemporary art centre in Gateshead, the British Galleries at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, numerous British Council pavilions at the Venice Biennale and the French government's Paris Calling initiative. For work on promoting French art in Britain under this scheme, in 2008 she was made a Chevalier de L'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and pinned the medal up on her bedroom wall, alongside her Brunswick card and pictures of her children.

Special Adviser

In the runup to the 2010 general election, Helen took a sabbatical from Brunswick to advise Brown on his culture strategy.[2]
