Shelagh Wright 

"We must embrace risk– there are no safe bets any more."

Shelagh Wright is a world class creativity champion who works with a diverse range of people and projects around the world on cultural and creative economy policy and sustainable practice.

She is a Director of Mission Models Money, an Associate of the think tank Demos, a Director of ThreeJohnsandShelagh and an Associate of the Culture+Conflict initiative.

Shelagh was a contributor to the Creative Britain strategy and a member of the EU Expert Working Group on the Creative Industries but she's far more than a mere wonk; she's a facilitator, a provocateur, a producer and one of the minds behind LIFT's recent 'Change for a Tenner' series of events. 

Shelagh is also on the boards of several UK arts and cultural organisations.
