Head of Programme - Arts
Shoubhik Bandopadhyay joined PHF in November 2022 as Head of Programme – Arts. He has worked in the cultural sector since 2009, first delivering community arts and music education programmes before focusing more on organisational development, strategy and research. Before joining PHF he was Head of Strategic Insight at the National Archives and he has also held roles with London Sinfonietta, Barbican Centre and Nesta, where he authored the final report in the influential Digital Culture series.
