Cllr Dale Heenan

Swindon Borough Council


Best Arts Champion - Councillor 2021

Cllr Dale Heenan

What our judges said:

"Cllr Heenan’s work on behalf of artists and audiences in Swindon is so inspiring. From funding ingenious ways to keep libraries open, to getting art on tour, his inventiveness and lateral thinking is so evident. His ability to create partnerships, and secure investment, for major capital projects means his vision is likely to unlock real lasting change for the town."
"There doesn’t seem to be a layer of the council and the community that Cllr Heenan hasn’t been involved with in advocating for the power of the arts. It’s wonderful to see the impact of his new ways of thinking on the regeneration efforts in Swindon."
