Quiet Down There

Tell us about yourself

I’m an intersectional feminist, mum, producer, law student & cocktail drinker.  I grew up in Bristol where I formed my community-organising roots and have lived in Brighton for last 20 years.  I co-founded Quiet Down There in 2016  - we specialise in socially-engaged work and we are based in a 100-year old fruit and veg market.

What excites you about being part of the ARTCRY panel?

I love the urgency of the funding model and the ability to speak to the strength of feeling an issue is creating. It feels like an antidote to the attritional model of governance that we find ourselves in. 

What components would your dream application have?

I look for work that is rich but has many access points.  The best work can be the simplest ideas that keep unravelling, provoking thought and discussion for weeks and months after they happen.   

The Steering Committee

The company directors and panel are involved on an individual capacity, not representing their organisations and on a voluntary basis.

If you are interested in joining the panel in future please email Kathryn Bilyard on with some information about yourself and why you are interested.
