Danielle Goulé began as British Art Network Administrator in Spring 2021 and is based at the Paul Mellon Centre. Prior to joining BAN, Danielle studied for a BA in Fine Art with Art History at the University of Leeds, and an MFA in Craft at the Academy of Art & Design, Gothenburg University. She has a background of roles within the gallery context, including a Curatorial Internship at the University of Leeds Fine Art Project Space.
Danielle has a history of working with arts networks and so understands how valuable they can be for their members. In 2015 she co-founded Nocturne, a support network for art students and artists in Leeds at various points in their professional trajectories. The project was formed with the goal of increasing collaboration between the city’s art schools, studios and institutions and our programme included regular group-crits, exhibitions, and seminars to encourage the cross pollination of ideas between participants. By running Nocturne, Danielle was able to witness the potential for ideas and projects to be accelerated though collaboration and feels privileged to be experiencing more of this through her work with BAN.
