Maggie MacLeod Broadley

Maggie Broadley @CoCreate

A graduate of the Ceramics Department of the Glasgow School of Art, Broadley is a creative individual with drive and commitment who launched CoCreate in June 2017. A collaborative, interdisciplinary practice which enthusiastically champions the role of craft, creative and community development, it has a particular focus on supporting local people, communities and organisations to work with artists, designers and makers on creative, entrepreneurial and regeneration projects. 

Formerly Executive Director of Craft Town Scotland, a community-led creative regeneration project based in West Kilbride, Broadley has significant experience of strategic and project development, fundraising, management of a capital project and creative programming. Responsible for driving Craft Town Scotland’s development over a 13-year period, during this time the project was recognised at national level through various awards including Enterprising Britain 2006, a Scottish Urban Regneration Forum Award in 2006, a Creative Scotland Creative Place Award in 2012 and the Village Category of the Great British High Street Awards 2015. 

Broadley has developed a distinct skill set across the creative, community development and cultural enterprise sectors; developing strong, working relationships with local people, makers, fellow professionals and collaborators. Her contribution to the place-making agenda has been recognised by inclusion in various advisory groups, including the Scottish Government’s External Advisory Group assembled in September 2012 to take forward a national review of town centres.

Having worked successfully with a wide range of individuals and organisations – communities, creative practitioners and organisations, Local and National Government officials and politicians – Broadley has excellent interpersonal skills and is equally comfortable speaking at local, national and international conferences and cultural exchanges.
