Ellie Smith


Innovation Officer

Ellie is the Innovation Officer, working across various aspects of the charity’s R&D projects, she originally joined the team as the wAVE Project Support Apprentice.

Ellie has a BA Honours Degree in History from the University of Exeter. Her studies focussed on social history and gender history; in particular, the role that historical popular culture has played in creating accepted gender norms. This interest in social history has prompted her focus on the role the Heritage and Culture Sector plays in increasing understanding of diversity in the modern day. She is particularly passionate about the role that innovative practice and use of technology can play in ensuring museums are accessible spaces for all.

Outside of work Ellie will likely be found swimming, paddle boarding or wood carving.
