Kerry Campbell is a curator interested in the social and political structures which continue to define class inequality - with a particular focus on the continued plight of the maligned working classes in Britain today and an additional interest in diversifying arts engagement and alternative pedagogy. She is invested in understanding and deconstructing the inevitable disenchantment of lower socio-economic groups with Contemporary art by locally redefining the terms, situations and opportunities for engagement.
Campbell lives and works in Luton town and is the founder and director of TMT Projects.
