She works with organisations ranging from FACT, Serpentine Galleries and Rhizome to the Goethe Institut, DACS, Arts Council England and UK government. She regularly participates in panel discussions, lectures at Christie’s and the RCA, and mentors artists. Lucy is an Advisory Board member for Furtherfield.
