Heather Whatley

Programmes & Partnerships Manager

Heather joined the Talitha team in January 2022 - she is originally from Oklahoma, USA and has a varied background with a master degree and a bachelor degree in international business. She taught English as a second language in China and the Czech Republic, studied in Spain and Italy, and did volunteer stints in Uganda and Costa Rica. During her travels, she became heavily involved with creative organisations and anti human trafficking initiatives by organising events, raising awareness, volunteering, co-leading a photography workshop in Kolkata, India and organising the first A21 Walk for Freedom in Prague, Czech Republic. She loves the arts and has witnessed how the creative arts can heal and restore hope in unique and profound ways that no other medium can. She is the person who connects with existing / new partners and organises Talitha-led workshops with the mission to work alongside a breadth of organisations to make a real change in lives through creative expression.
