I have worked in arts management for the last 18 years – as a venue manager, production coordinator, youth arts leader, University lecturer, and in programming, marketing, fundraising… I have also spent several years as the Exec Director for a fast-growing arts charity and NPO.
Now, in my freelance capacity, I work with different organisations to do what some people refer to as 'the boring stuff', but which I love.
I particularly work in theatre, festivals and with organisations that use creativity for social change.
how i work
I don't like using the word 'consultant' because it makes me think of someone in a suit who charges £1000/day, and that's not really my style. I work with you and get stuff done, offering support and training where needed.
I am based in the South West but can travel/Zoom.
I have worked with lots of independent theatre companies, arts organisations and artists around the UK – including Cheltenham Festivals, Gloucester Culture Trust, Lyrici Arts, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Sonic Bothy, Strike A Light, University of Chichester, VAULT Festival and Wise Children.
