Amelia first volunteered with Global Grooves on the Cotton Culture project, researching the social history of Vale Mill, now The Vale. She joins the team after a career in a variety of ancient (5,000 years!) and modern (est. 2002) arts and heritage venues across England. She is eager to explore everything The Vale can be for Mossley, Greater Manchester, and beyond.
Amelia is passionate about enabling people to realise their ambitions to create and achieve their goals. In a voluntary capacity she has worked with Refugee Action and Reclaim project, mentoring refugees, and young working-class female leaders. This rewarding mentoring ranged from increasing confidence in public speaking to CV and interview coaching.
When not working she’ll be found hiking, jogging, cycling (very slowly) in the Peaks, and more recently, in handstand classes.
