A photo portrait of Owen Kimm. He wears an orange denim jacket and square glasses. He is visibly happy!

Owen is the Marketing and Communications Manager for visionary arts charity Creative Folkestone. He brings to the Shape board almost 10 years of experience from across the arts and culture sector having worked for organisations including Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture, Siobhan Davies Dance, Brunel’s ss Great Britain and more.

Owen specialises in digital communications and helping organisations to become more digitally savvy and futureproof. He has a passion for improving access and opportunities for everyone to engage and enjoy the arts.

Beyond the world of work, Owen is also a practising artist and musician, although he says that how good he is at either of those things is up for debate!
