Danielle Battigelli


BA LLB (Cape Town), MA (Arts Policy and Management, Birkbeck)


Danielle’s experience as a freelance arts and charity consultant extends from 2005. This followed 15 years working as a solicitor specialising in charity law, as well as with intellectual property, contractual and other legal matters for charities and businesses. 


She has a thorough understanding of charity and CIC governance, and their legal structure, registration and reporting requirements. This is based also on her extensive experience as a charity trustee and senior executive roles within arts and community organisations. 


Danielle can offer advice and support with set up, change and registration of new and evolving not-for-profit organisations, and guidance to organisations and individuals on to their optimum legal structure and their rights and responsibilities. She has delivered training in ‘legal essentials’ for producers and arts management students, as well as charity administration services.


As an arts professional her projects have included management of large scale festivals - an annual street carnival, music and photography festivals - and smaller, community based arts projects.


Other experience includes research and consultation leading to options reports for trustees, feasibility studies to support funding applications and evaluation of arts projects and programmes.


Sector experience includes community arts, museums, music, visual arts, health and social care (including dementia-friendly arts), and young people’s learning. Practical experience includes fundraising, project planning, budget management, publicity and evaluation.


Danielle values and promotes collaborative and partnership working for inspiriting and effective artistic, community and learning impacts. The importance of inclusivity and environmental impact have always informed her work and she is currently involved in the learning and developmental work of the Oxford Cultural Anti-Racism Alliance and Green Arts Oxfordshire Network.
