Sue Mackinnon

Media Projects & Engagement Coordinator

Community engagement is at the heart of everything Sue does - from training citizen journalists to getting local people involved in energy and digital arts projects.

Prior to working for KWMC, Sue was a professional journalist for 20 years, writing for both local and national newspapers and magazines - and was editor of an award-winning community newspaper. She has also run her own Journalism and PR agency, getting positive publicity in the media for local organisations.

Sue is a member of the KWMC communications team and has been responsible for organising and promoting several large-scale community events, most recently for Celebrating Age and to launch the Social Mirror project in Knowle West.

With a strong background in green and environmental issues, Sue’s recent projects include the European funded 3e Houses and she is currently collaborating with Western Power Distribution, Siemens and Bristol City Council on So La Bristol.

Sue is part of the engagement team for SPHERE, working with all packages to ensure user-centred design and public involvement and engagement throughout the project.
