Hazel Colquhoun is an independent arts consultant working particularly on curating and commissioning for the public realm. Based in York, with projects throughout the UK, she has worked in the arts sector for over 20 years. She works on a wide variety of projects, in the public, private and voluntary sectors, with organisations ranging from large commercial developers to small charities and community groups.
