Meet the team Our Team Nina Byrne | Head of Communications & Audience Development In her own words: "I’m a passionate advocate for arts and culture and the positive impact that it has on so many peoples' lives. I originally moved to the north east to study Fine Art at Northumbria University in Newcastle in 1995 and have worked within the north east arts sector since graduating. Over this time I've worked for many of the regions’ best loved cultural organisations from BALTIC, to mima, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Dance City to the Tyneside Cinema. It’s great to now have the opportunity to work for National Youth Choirs of Great Britain (NYCGB), a national organisation based in Durham. NYCGB plays an amazing role in enriching and transforming the lives of young people across the breadth of the UK through choral music. I’m very excited to be working as part of the NYCGB team to help reach even more young people, from all backgrounds with its outstanding, life-enhancing and life-changing work and to be part of a forward thinking organisation that continues to grow and thrive." For NYCGB: Nina looks after marketing, communications and audience development at NYCGB.
