Richie Cumming

Vice Chair

Richie Cumming

Richie has worked as Outreach Officer for National Galleries of Scotland since 2008, delivering creative arts projects in communities across Scotland, inspired by participants’ lives, local histories and the national collection of art. This, his prior role as Education Co-ordinator at Dundee Contemporary Arts and his work as a freelance artist, has led him to work with folk of all ages and abilities, but primarily young people. He is passionate about providing people with the platforms, skills and confidence to create, contribute to and comment on our shared cultural landscape.

Richie is a dad, a (former) DJ, record collector and fishkeeper. He has previously worked as a family support officer, bar manager and in a range of service industry/factory jobs. He is on the board of his local community centre and is a workplace trade union representative.
