Corra Foundation is delighted to announce that Allan Farmer will take up post as Head of Place on 16 April. Allan joins Corra Foundation from WHALE Arts where he has been Director since January 2014. He will lead the work of the People in Place programme which aims to get alongside communities that independent funders have not historically reached, as well as others where there is a strong appetite for change.
Corra Foundation Deputy Chief Executive, Carolyn Sawers said:
“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Allan to the team. He brings a wealth of experience and shares Corra Foundation’s passion for making a positive difference and seeking to help make Scotland a fairer place. Allan joins at a time when many communities are living with complex challenges and prolonged uncertainties. We hope that through People in Place we can support people, even as they navigate these difficult circumstances, to find ways to take action and create positive change.”
“Corra Foundation is an organisation with an excellent reputation and an exciting future so I am thrilled to be joining the team. I am looking forward to developing new and existing opportunities through People in Place to support positive change in communities around Scotland.”
