Two new Trustees join the Art School

The Art School is delighted to announce that two new Trustees have been appointed to our Board.

Sokari Douglas Camp CBE (left) was born in Buguma, Nigeria, in 1958, and lives and works in London. She first exhibited at October Gallery in 1985 and has since had more than 40 solo shows worldwide. In 2005 she was awarded a CBE in recognition of her services to art. Her work is in the permanent collections of the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; Setagaya Art Museum, Tokyo; and the British Museum, London. In 2012, her large sculpture, All the World is Now Richer, a memorial to commemorate the abolition of slavery, was exhibited in The House of Commons and then, in 2014, at St Paul’s Cathedral, London.

Carol Taylor (right) has substantial experience of employment and discrimination law and is a champion of diversity. She has over a decade of experience as a leadership judge, managing a busy London Employment Tribunal. Recently retired from her full-time role, Carol sits part-time as an employment judge. She was Governor of a school in Greater London for many years and looks forward to contributing to the Art School achieving its aims of greater diversity.

Jamie Bill, Chair of the Board of Trustees, commented: ‘The Art School is delighted to have Carol and Sokari join the Board of the Art School. Both in their own ways bring a wealth of experience that will be invaluable in assisting the School realise its ambitious plans for the future.’

Welcome Sokari and Carol!
