Delivered by:

This session will be managed by Arts Marketing Association and delivered by Alia Ullah .

I am very lucky to work at Manchester Museum as Communications & Digital Manager, surrounded by amazing objects that tell so many stories. If you would like to find out more about Mughal art and heritage, check out the Mughal Museum.

Recognising the rapid growth of digital marketing, I have built an engaged following of over 280k across Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat. I support arts organisations to leverage social media in new ways, reaching new audiences through influencer collaborations and creative campaigning. I am working with the Manchester Museum Partnership, devising a digital strategy and up-skilling staff to become digitally literate.

When I am not painting or in a museum or gallery, I sew and create outfits inspired by my art. I am passionate about ethical fashion and actively campaign against modern-day slavery.
