About

Simona Cavaliere, an events organiser, curator, author and blogger across the public, private and not for profit sectors, set up Future for the Arts in 2010.

Italian mother tongue with fluent English and French, Simona holds a strong background in Arts Management as well as an extensive experience across the Creative and Fashion sectors both in UK and Italy. She started her carrier in Arts Management in 2002, accomplishing a wide range of research, consultancy and teaching activities in the realm of arts and heritage. Meanwhile she has developed a thorough experience in Fashion as product developer, researcher and later as blogger.

Born and brought up in Tuscany, in 2007 Simona relocated to London, where she has developed the skills and critical understanding of the current arts development and practice in UK, she has actively researched and explored the UK visual, performing art and fashion environment, both emerging and main-stream, as well as increased her work experience in the field of museums, galleries and fashion.

Simona combines a dynamic approach and a practical appreciation of the marketplace to ensure she adds value to your project from day one: her perspective places the debates and issues that surround the international arts policy and current developments in contemporary art at the core of her practice.
She approaches the field critically, theoretically and through best-practice in exhibition making, programming and art writing in museums, galleries and a broad range of alternative contexts.

Simona has always valued the importance of the intellectual approach, as well as pursued a lifelong professional and learning development, addressing initiative, involvement and innovation.
She has engaged in all relevant areas, such as researching on exhibitions and collections, reflecting on social, political and historical contexts, writing reviews and conceiving her own curatorial projects.

In 2010 she started the blog “Future for the Arts” with the aim at building a creative ideal bridge between London, her adopted town, and Florence, her home town.
The blog addresses the role of critical enquiry that arts and fashion bear to everyday life, along with the investigation on the economic potential of the creative sector, cultural production and heritage as impulse to the creation of long-term benefits and prosperity.
The initial focus on the cultural trends and developments happening in both cities, has later evolved into a broader analysis and survey of cutting-edge international events, as well as intriguing tales of artistic life.

Prior to setting up her own consultancy practice Simona was partner of Futuro Interventi Manageriali in Azienda, the family management consultancy specialising in organisational development and quality control assurance.

Other achievements include previous positions in fashion and museums as:

Product Development Co-ordinator – Burberrry London 2007 2008

Museum Development Manager - Fiesole Musei Comune di Fiesole 2002 2003

Logistics Assistant Manager – Prada 2000 2002

Simona holds a PG certificate of Museums, Galleries and Contemporary Culture from the University of Westminster, London, an MA of Arts Management from The Faculty of Economics, Rome and a MEng of Management and Economics Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, Bologna.
