About Who we are Staff Andreea Lupu Andreea joined Voluntary Arts in 2020 as Communications Administrator. In the last six years, she has worked across various areas of the arts and culture sector both in the UK and abroad, including theatre, contemporary art, heritage and film festivals, such as Birmingham Museums Trust, Ikon Gallery, START Art Fair (London, 2019), Supermarket Art Fair (Stockholm, 2019) and Anim'est International Film Festival. Her communications and project management experience expands to the education sector as well, having supported the Erasmus+ programme in the UK. Andreea’s creative story starts with pencil on paper. Originally from Romania, Andreea followed her passion for drawing and painting since childhood, graduating from an arts college. Strongly motivated to promote the value and benefits of artistic practices, she then studied communication and public relations in Romania and France and got a Master’s degree in Arts and Project Management in Birmingham, UK. She is now producing the Arts and Cultural Management Conference’s fourth edition (2021) while developing her own creative practice (ALTOPIA). I am eager to support Voluntary Arts in promoting and maximising the impact of creativity at social, cultural and health levels, notably in the current times of change and challenge.
