Anna co-founded Pathway Arts in 2012 to affect positive social change for refugees and people seeking asylum. She believes in the transformative power of storytelling and is dedicated to developing projects that provide a creative platform for individuals to tell their stories.

Emily Hayes

Director and team member

Previously, Emily has exhibited her own embroidery, such as The Knitting and Stitching Show as well as curating an embroidery exhibition at PS Mirabel Gallery. She co-created Connecting Threads, an arts project that worked with people affected by homelessness in the North West.

Emily believes no one is more or less equal than another, and has been involved in many campaigns with different people, including Full Circle Arts, a disability charity, where she led the curation of different people’s voices to work with banner maker Ed Hall. Which has led her to be very passionate in the advocate work in Pathway Arts, working with people seeking asylum to speak up about issues individuals face daily.

Emily manages and facilitates both advocate and creative projects. Overseeing a thorough approach to developing strong grass root asylum seeking voices is prevalent in all the projects Pathway Arts delivers.
