Denise Fahmy has many years’ experience in arts administration. She is a visual arts specialist and worked for Arts Council England for 15 years. In 2023 an Employment Tribunal found Denise’s claim of harassment she’d experienced at ACE due to her gender critical beliefs, was well-founded. ACE subsequently apologized to her. Her legal costs were partly met by 1,284 well-wishers through a successful Crowd Justice campaign.
