Findlay takes over Perth galleries and museums

Gillian Findlay is the new head of museums and collections for Culture Perth and Kinross, which runs the region's museums and galleries.

Findlay will take command of Perth Museum and Art Gallery, Fergusson Gallery and Alyth Museum from her current post as curatorial and engagement manager with Museums and Galleries Edinburgh.

She began her career as a volunteer at Edinburgh's Museum of Childhood. Her first museum role was as Project Officer for the HLF Millennium Funded ‘Making History' community collecting project at Tyne and Wear Museums.

A member of the HLF Committee for Scotland and the board of the Museums Association, Findlay will continue to serve on the MA board while she is in post at Culture Perth and Kinross. Her role is initially for a two-year period.

Findlay replaces Jenny Kinnear who has taken a new role as school support lead at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee.
