As a Creative Producer, I lead on the production and delivery of creative programmes, projects and live events. My strengths in project planning and delivery, relationship building and artist engagement is the core of my work.
My experience has encompassed programming, events management, festival management, project delivery and development and wider networking, sector development and strategic planning activities.
Festival, Event and
I have managed large and small scale festivals, outdoor events, showcases and conferences, and touring for national and international artists.
I have worked in major city centres, handling bespoke builds, licensing and ESAG alongside local council departments.
I have led on contracting, of venues, artists and crew. I have led staff teams, technical crews and managed community based volunteer programmes.
I am first aid and mental health first aid trained, and have worked with Attitude is Everything in approaches to accessibility at both indoor and outdoor events.
Programming, Project Management and Strategy Development
I have led major venue and festival programmes, I curate and book artists to suit to style and size of event.
I have managed, developed and delivered projects for regional and national organisations. Maintaining networks and reviewing progress to ensure the projects grow to meet need and deliver the best outcomes.
I have supported organisations strategic development, working through funding, staff restructuring and sector positioning.
Adapting to Covid-19
For those looking at changing their way of working, or thinking outside the box, I have pivoted several programmes to enable them to continue their activity in ways which will not be impacted by changing regulations.
From moving group activity and conferences online, to live streaming to remote commissions there are plenty of ways organisations can stay connected with their artists, audiences or members, and I can support transitioning to programmes online.
I'm excited by events in unusual spaces, bringing performances to audiences in exciting and unexpected ways. I have experience of events in non-typical spaces or venues for music performances, such as car parks and urban streets and parks.
