Dave Moutrey, the Director of HOME, has dedicated his career to bringing people and the arts together. He was Director of Cornerhouse – one of the two arts organisations that merged to form HOME – as well as Chief Executive of Arts About Manchester, manager of the Abraham Moss Theatre and worked for two years as Marketing Director for City of Drama. Following his appointment earlier this year as Manchester City Council's new Director of Culture (the part-time post previously held by the former Whitworth director Maria Balshaw) Art Monthly reported Moutrey's ambition to make the city a 'net importer of artists and a net exporter of art.'
