CELEBRATING her 80th birthday this year Sylvia is an inspiration for her volunteer work within Liverpool’s art and culture scene. For the past 25 years she has been a committed volunteer at National Museums and makes an outstanding contribution to the Walker Art Gallery Education Team. She leads adult tours and supports Big Art for Little Artists, preparing material for workshops and even taking costumes home to mend.
Sylvia ensures provision for our youngest visitors is always to the highest standard. As a retired primary school teaching her experience is an invaluable resource as she is able to adapt her classroom experiences to the gallery setting.
Sylvia’s approachable, warm manner and her ability to gauge the needs of her audience, means that all members of the public get something from her tours. Sylvia is a true ambassador for the city and for culture.
