Ella founded Art School Plus which is both an alternative art school and a convener of unique art projects. It is the bridge which connects artists with real-world public realm commissions to realise and imagine new ways in which art can exist in the world.
Alongside Art School Plus, Ella works as a Consultant and is an Associate for Cultural Associates Oxford, specialising in innovation and new business models within the creative industries. This has included working on Newham’s bid to be Borough of Culture, and leadership training for creatives for the British Council. As an independent consultant, Ella has led major artwork production for Yinka Shonibare and Temitayo Ogunbiyi. Prior to founding Art School Plus, Ella headed up a UK-wide engagement programme at the British Library.
Finally, Ella is a Henry Moore Foundation trustee, sitting on the Audiences and Education committee.
