With a diverse background in public exhibition across multiple art forms, and in the public sector funding innovative digital businesses, Verity has developed specialisms in fields as apparently remote as theatre, games, wearable sensors and storytelling. She is an enthusiastic advocate for work that is experimental, embraces risk and that is interdisciplinary by design. She is also an active board member of the Royal Television Society Bristol, occasional public speaker and judge of digital awards across the UK, including Wildscreen's prestigious Panda Awards.
