Vanessa Wilson: Director of Culture

Liam Logan talks to Vanessa Wilson, recently appointed Director of Culture at the Ulster-Scots Agency.

Vanessa has always been interested in Ulster-Scots culture, particularly the accordion. She says culture includes music and dance as well as history, drama, visual arts and patchwork quilting.

She wants to conserve Ulster-Scots heritage sites and trails - eg Presidential homesteads - and is currently looking at a Hamilton and Montgomery trail; and she also hopes to see growth in drama.
