Polly Robbins / Director

Polly joined 47/49 in November 2013 and became a director in January 2014. She got to know 47/49 Tanner Street after curating Not A Drop at the space, an art show raising awareness of issues surrounding water. Polly has a rather eclectic but very fitting background in developing empty buildings into arts spaces, running community education projects, and campaigning on global political issues. She is particularly passionate about raising awareness through the arts and building networks across disciplines.

Scarlett Plouviez Comnas / Founder

Scarlett founded 47/49 with Rosie in 2012 and as Artistic Director was fundamental in developing the organisation’s cultural and business strategy. Scarlett left 47/49 at the end of 2013 to lead on a number of theatre projects and continue her work as a freelance director.
