Hannah Higginson

Hannah is engagement producer for Watershed, Bristol’s independent cinema. Within this role she has developed a portfolio of outreach projects and public programmes, which develop young people’s creativity, curiosity and skills as artists, filmmakers, producers, technologists, coders and audiences.

Before working for Watershed she managed an education project that raised awareness amongst fashion students – the next generation of industry players – of how the fashion industry could be transformed to be more economically just and environmental sustainable. Alongside this she led on London College of Fashion’s Shared Talent India – linking UK and Indian designers and was associate lecturer at Chelsea College of Art in sustainable fashion.

She studied Politics and International Development at Sussex University. Her degree was sandwiched between two years of volunteering in Africa delivering income generation projects for VSO in Malawi and HIV/Aid education projects for Restless Development in Uganda.
