Amberlea Neely

Amberlea Neely is Director of Starling Start, a creative practice and consultancy with a focus on arts, place and collaboration. Previously she led creative and inclusive public engagement as Acting Director of non-profit PLACE.

Amberlea’s career has been rooted in understanding place and creating positive change in Northern Ireland including: investigative research into forgotten city spaces; community led neighbourhood plans; and framing a borough wide bid for UK City of Culture. She works with a range of clients and partners – local and central government, agencies, charities, artists, architects, academics, and communities of practice.

Amberlea is a Lecturing Associate on the MA Arts Management at Queen’s University Belfast, and a panellist on the Irish Architecture Foundation’s Reimagine Placemaking initiative. She holds an MSc in Cultural Management, a PgCert in Executive Leadership and a BA (Hons) in Fine Art.

Amberlea lives a very short stroll away from the Strand Arts Centre with her husband and son.
