BETTY WALLINGFORD - COSTUME & PROPS DESIGNER
Betty is a designer based in Gothenburg, Sweden, and has joined GEST's production of Ghost Stories as a prop and costume designer. Besides working in theater, Betty runs a children's design group called Byrån för Glömda Saker, working in collaboration with the Gothenburg City Museum at Lilla Änggården.
Betty's entryway into design began in museums in the United States, and before moving to Sweden, she gained experience at several interactive institutions including the Montshire Museum of Science, the Museum of Food and Drink and the New York Hall of Science. As an undercurrent to her work, Betty is interested in designing objects and spaces that can spark storytelling and the imagination. You can see her projects here.
