Lizzie is the UK Strategic Lead at What Next? - a national cultural movement which brings people together to debate and shape the future of the arts and culture in the UK. She is also the Co-Director of the Cultural Learning Alliance (CLA), a collective voice working to ensure that all children and young people have meaningful access to culture.

Lizzie is passionate about creating new ways of working and thinking; about partnership, conversation and collaboration. Lizzie has worked for a local authority, for Arts Council England, as Cultural Advisor to Partnerships for Schools (now part of the Department of Education), as an associate with the Innovation Unit and as a freelance consultant. She was the 2011/12 Clore Leadership Learning Fellow, and is a governor of Leyton Sixth Form College. In 2021, she received an MBE for services to the arts.

I am really delighted to be joining King's Culture and am looking forward to exploring the many different ways that I can contribute to and learn from the university, its partners and its thinking.– Lizzie Crump MBE, Visiting Engagement Fellow at King's College London
We're excited about teaming up with Lizzie at King's. She brings great experience, from opening up conversations about the changing role of art and culture to championing access for young people to culture, which will be hugely valuable as we continue to develop the King's cultural programme.– Beatrice Pembroke, Executive Director, Culture, King's College London
