Hope in Tottenham announces two new employee contracts to their Arts Projects team and Communications Team respectively ahead of a July 6th rebrand launch.
By Omar Alleyne-Lawler, Communications Manager
The appointment of Richard Dixon as Arts Projects Officer and Omar Alleyne-Lawler as Communications Manager comes ahead of the charity’s rebranding to Hope in Haringey.
The pair, which have previously worked for Hope in Tottenham on a freelance basis, join the growing team at a period when the charity is expanding its capacity and improving its effectiveness.
Owner of local photography studio, Aseptic Studios, Richard Dixon joins the Arts Projects team after working with Hope in Tottenham during the 2022 Youth Summit. Richard’s background has seen him work with brands such as Nike, Adidas, Vogue Italia, Schon, Chloe and Notion and builds on his experience with cultural powerhouses such as the V&A Museum, Science Gallery London, and Somerset House.
Alongside his photography experience, Richard also has also developed workshops that he hopes to bring to the HiT Arts Projects team, taking their efforts to the next level.

After being the Editor at Sugar Media and Marketing for their Black History Month Magazine, BHM365.com and Student Times publications, Omar moved into the Marketing field before leaving to launch his own community projects. Joining Hope in Tottenham in 2018 as a Communications Intern, Hope in Tottenham supported his return to university. Studying Media and Communications at Coventry University, Omar maintained his responsibilities at Hope in Tottenham, first as a Communications Officer before his promotion into the Communications Manager role. The hope is that Omar’s example serves as a template for future Hope in Tottenham/Haringey academic programmes and internships.
