Camilla Forest is a project manager for the National Trust in their central experience delivery team. She worked for over seven years delivering cultural programming and leading visitor experience teams at two of the National Trust’s top 10 busiest properties: Stourhead and Polesden Lacey. She’s an expert in heritage interpretation, exhibitions, and visitor operations. Camilla has commissioned artists – including Anouk Mercier, Sam Smith, Studio Meraki, and Wild Rumpus - to create works inspired by ‘spirit of place’ as part of the national Trust New Art programme. She’s passionate about working with audiences, curators, and conservators to site works in sensitive heritage settings.
Her current role is focussed upon optimising the processes of project delivery to maximise audience impact made by experiences produced across the National Trust’s property network. She’s particularly interested in exploring ways to improve inclusion and experience quality through audience consultation, co-creation and evaluation.
In her spare time you’ll find her climbing Munros.
