Since completing her studies, Laura has worked as an artist curator at The Royal Standard, an artist led space in Liverpool.  She was instrumental in the growing reputation of The Royal Standard which led to it becoming a partner of the Liverpool Biennial in 2012.  She has curated major exhibitions and participated in an event with Tate Modern and has also since founded an online arts magazine, The Double Negative, which has a growing reputation and has been featured on BBC Radio and The Guardian.

"The course at the University of Salford was instrumental in my understanding of contemporary art, working as a practising visual artist curator, and working as part of an arts team. Staff always had time for students, were motivated and energetic, and were key in forming a fantastic undergraduate experience. I would recommend this BA course to anyone who is passionate about the arts."
