Rebecca Spooner

Rebecca Spooner is the Cultural Heritage Curator for South Wales with the National Trust.

She supports a variety of properties and outdoor places with presentation, interpretation, programming and collections management as well as contributing to national projects. Rebecca is also the Research Lead for Wales, supporting the advocacy, co-ordination and governance of academic research and partnerships for the National Trust in Wales.

Rebecca has a background in the visual arts and previous to her role at the Trust, Rebecca was Creative Director for Peak, an arts organisation working with contemporary artists and rural communities in the Black Mountains. Rebecca led on artist commissions, international residencies and cultural programmes in collaboration with environmental and heritage partners.

Rebecca is a Clore Fellow and during her fellowship in 2018 completed a three-month secondment at The Whitworth Gallery, Manchester and a Tate Intensive programme, which focused on key questions facing art galleries and museums in the twenty-first century.

Rebecca’s curatorial interests are broadly landscape based – British twentieth century landscape painting, notions of ‘the rural’ in British art (historical and contemporary), land represented through film and photographic practice and the influence of Welsh landscapes on the Picturesque movement.
