Oxford resident prepares Cowley Road Carnival

May 16, 2018 by  

The Cowley Road Carnival is being organised by Oxford resident Micaela Tuckwell.

Tuckwell has an abundance of experience obtained in the third sector. She has lived in Oxford for about a decade. As the recently appointed executive director of the Cowley Road Works, she will aspire to hit the ground running via the Cowley Road Carnival. Logo design from Oxford can be used by charities for promotional purposes. Tuckwell told the Oxford Mail:

“My main aim is to strengthen the long-term future of the carnival one of the region’s biggest free multicultural community arts events. Oxford’s communities deserve great quality, sustainable cultural events that everyone can participate in and enjoy.”

Tuckwell is clear that volunteers and supporters are pivotal players in the delivery of carnivals. She recognises the importance of making best use of collective enthusiasm. In the past, Tuckwell has worked for Oxford’s Story Museum in a fundraising capacity and has also been a project manager at Jacari, a community education organisation.

According to the chair of the trustee board at Cowley Road Works, Brian Trotman, Tuckwell has a top team behind her. For Trotman, the carnival was a great success last year.

Oxford City Council does provide some funds towards the hosting of the carnival. Nonetheless, the organisers are oblige to get resources from various sponsors.
