Ciara is the friendly face who looks after our Bloco family, dealing with enquiries, bookings, and any queries you may have. Working alongside the lead artist team, Ciara is an essential part of the Bloco team and we are delighted you will get to know her better too. She is also a visual artist and has well and truly got the Carnival bug now after starting working with Global Grooves in 2022.
Ciara completed her BA in Fine Art at Leeds Beckett University in 2020 and has been working to develop her digital artwork as a freelancer since. She has volunteered for non-profit organisations throughout her time at university, curating and exhibiting her first solo show Your Place Within the City at ΦΙΞ in Art, Thessaloniki in 2019, where she was volunteering as part of the Erasmus scheme. Whilst at University she advocated for the students of the Art school, while volunteering as the Art, Architecture and Design Representative.
Since leaving university she has volunteered for non-profits such as: Action Together and Hope Guardians. Both organisations working with something she feels extremely passionate about, helping people with mental health issues and teaching people to living more mindfully. She is excited to be part of the Global Grooves team, working as an Arts Administrator.
