Hannah Jane Walker

Hannah joined Kettle’s Yard in April 2024 to be our Young People’s Programme Coordinator. She will be delivering our Mildred Fund supported project, Bridges — a three year project (2024–2027) that connects and collaborates with young people in order to use visual art as a stepping stone for discussion, connection and stability to increase confidence and wellbeing. Hannah will primarily be working with North Cambridge Academy and Anglia Ruskin University students.

Hannah grew up visiting the Kettle’s Yard house with her grandparents who were friends with Jim Ede. She works part-time in this role, and for the rest of the week is a freelance writer, performer and artist educator. She studied English Literature at the University of East Anglia and has a Creative Writing Masters from Newcastle University. She has a background in education theory and production and project management and has worked in a number of roles for organisations such as the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, National Centre for Writing, Norfolk and Norwich Festival, Apples and Snakes and Cambridge University Health Trust. She is trained in facilitation and creative wellbeing.

Hannah is passionate about who art includes and what the role of art is in a time of uncertainty.

Hannah’s favourite part of the Kettle’s Yard house is:
The tiny inscription in the pane of glass on the stairs to the attic room that says ‘From Helen and Jim Ede who made and gave this place’.
