Louisa Shanks

Assistant Programme Manager

Louisa is an Assistant Programme Manager working across multiple prizes exploring government innovation and the future of cities.

Prior to Nesta, Louisa worked in film publicity and production and spent three years at Into Film, a film education charity funded by the BFI. As a producer, Louisa worked on the annual Into Film Festival and Into Film Awards ceremony, a one-of-a-kind celebration of young filmmakers from across the UK.

Outside of work Louisa can be found prepping for her next book club meeting, getting frustrated at the potter’s wheel or sampling the best (and worst) of London’s live comedy scene.
