About Pat Hadley
I’m Pat Hadley and I’m interested in sharing my passion for knowledge about culture and the past. I want to find the most exciting ways of telling brilliant stories about fascinating stuff. I feel most at home with with artists, media people and GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums) folk.
I’m adamant that we should be democratising and opening up access to cultural material and knowledge for all. I’m interested in community engagement, audience development and using culture for positive social change.
I’ve been an archaeologist for the last 10 years because I didn’t want to give anything up: art, cultural theory, science, social science, practical work and philosophical quandaries. Archaeology seemed to cover them all. I’ve frozen my fingers in muddy trenches all over Yorkshire and beyond and processed soil samples, catalogued material and argued about hand axes for longer than some might think is healthy.
