Samuel Smith

Summit Community Senior Manager at The Wellbeing Project


Sam is a passionate community builder with a keen interest in the arts, having graduated in Graphic Design and Visual Communication.

Sam’s first taste of social impact came shortly after; partnering with The Arts Council England on a project to redistribute funding to benefit underrepresented communities. This spurred a keen interest in the power of art and culture to catalyse community development. One of Sam’s proudest achievements was working on the City of Liverpool’s successful bid to become the Capital of Culture, and witnessing the resulting dynamic improvements to the region.

In 2018, Sam returned to the social change sector after working at sea for five years, during which time he was able to travel extensively through six continents. He has since been involved in sustainable tourism projects, as well as contributing to the Design for Good campaign to promote human-centred design.

Through his role as Senior Community Manager, Sam relishes building meaningful connections and engaging networks of dedicated actors within the field of social change.
