Katie Daley-Yates has worked within the visual arts field since 2005. She began her career in Bristol at the award winning public art producers Situations (www.situations.org.uk) where she was part of the small creative team who delivered ground-breaking public art projects such as Nowhereisland, 2012 by Alex Hartley the South West Artist Taking the Lead project for the Cultural Olympiad (www.nowhereisland.org). During her time at Situations Katie has contributed to a number of research and advocacy projects designed to develop and change perspectives on public art. She was part of the pilot phase for the European Network of Public Art Producers 2010-2011, which has recently culminated in the acclaimed book Out of Time, Out of Place: Public Art (Now), edited by Claire Doherty.
In 2013 Katie moved to Southampton where she began Host Productions to continue her career independently as a visual arts producer. Since moving to the south coast Katie has supported a range of arts organisations and artists providing consultancy, project management and curatorial services.
Katie is now working on developing Southampton’s first independent public art commissioning programme.
