Pauline Hadaway

Pauline Hadaway has worked in arts administration since 1990 and been director of Belfast Exposed Photography since 2000, overseeing its transformation from a small scale, though politically significant, city based project into an internationally renowned gallery of contemporary photography. 

Having extensively written and contributed to debates around arts and cultural policy, Pauline’s research and consultancy interests include: the impact of policies, which employ the arts as a tool for social change in the UK, Ireland and in post Good Friday Agreement Northern Ireland and shifting relationships between citizens, civil society and the state, including restrictions on photography in public space; photography and protest and impact of policy both on artistic autonomy and management practice.
