Director, Grand Union
Cheryl Jones is Director and one of the founding members of Grand Union, a gallery and artist studios complex in Digbeth. Since 2009 she has successfully developed Grand Union from being run voluntarily by a collective of artists and curators, to an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
She is now leading the organisation through a major capital project that will transform Junction Works, a beautiful mid-nineteenth century, Grade II listed canal building in Digbeth, into a vibrant centre for the presentation and production of contemporary art. Cheryl has a range of experience in curating and project management and has been a key collaborator in developing initiatives such as Digbeth First Friday and Birmingham Art Map.
