Director of the National Media Museum, Jo Quinton-Tulloch, has over 20 years of experience in Museums. She began her career as a member of the public facing Learning team at the Science Museum and has since gone on to deliver world class programming and exhibitions in the UK and USA (at the Science Museum in London, the Boston Museum of Science in the United States and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth) ranging from small temporary displays to multi-million pound, award-winning permanent galleries.
Jo strongly believes that museums have a key role to play within communities. Not only do they preserve and conserve cultural heritage but they offer opportunities for people to learn, share and be inspired. Her focus in her role in Bradford has been to forge new, sustainable partnerships across the city and region which reposition the Museum as a centre of excellence in STEM learning related to the Museum’s collections in the technology of light and sound.
