Javed has joined our team as Keighley Creative’s new Cultural Heritage and Diversity Lead. He has a rich and varied career to date working to support community cohesion; building inter-faith partnerships; doing lots of work helping up-skill organisations about their Safeguarding practices; as well as helping Supplementary Schools to make sure they have all the guidance they need to thrive.
Although Javed has lived in Keighley for most of his live, much of his work has seen him work Regionally and Nationally, and so this is his opportunity to bring his knowledge home and help make sure that we’re putting on a great mix of events and opportunities for all our communities.
P.S. We are also going to give Javed some drawing lessons… Because he joked about it at interview, and now we want to make that happen 🙂
