I help arts organisations to take a more efficient, effective and creative approach to management.

I’ve worked with more than 20 arts organisations over the last 10 years, managing programmes, providing consultancy and research services. From working as assistant to the Fair Manager at the Frieze Art Fair where I managed key international commercial gallery clients and artists, to developing a Crowdfunding mentoring programme for Arts and Business NI, or evaluating the first socially focused tech seed funding stream in Northern Ireland my focus is always on capacity building.

Helping arts organisations to thrive and grow both in the short and long term.

I provide an international perspective, an external set of eyes and facilitation skills to help arts organisations ask difficult questions of themselves, shape new business models and long term strategic plans.



‘I had the pleasure to work with Oonagh at Frieze Art Fair, where she filled the temporary position of Assistant to the Fair Manager for 4 consecutive years. Oonagh is able to think on her feet and manage difficult situations whilst maintaining a polite, and patient approach these skills made her a very valuable member of our team.’

I’d highly recommend Oonagh – she has a very personable and relaxed approach, but is a total professional.  We had excellent feed-back on Oonagh’s facilitation style. She’s a great person to have on your team – someone that won’t let you down for sure and will deliver to a very high standard.
