EXPERIENCE


Over the last 6 years, I've learned to produce and manage projects, managing budgets of up to £40,000, from public funding such as Arts Council England, DCMS, The Adam Mickiewicz Insitute and Local Authorities, to private fundraising and philanthropic giving.



Throughout 2020, I supported 6 artists applying first time to Arts Council England for COVID Emergency Funding, as well as provide advice & mentoring to 4 artists/companies applying for Project Grants for the very first time. Over the last 3 years, I have helped raise over £47,000 in public & private funding to support emerging artists, touring theatre companies, COVID Emergency Response funding, and community arts projects.



I've managed productions that have been performed across the UK and internationally, been featured on BBC World Service and won awards. Over the last 6 years, I've employed and commssioned over 100+ artists in my work as a producer or project manager with Pulse 53, Seemia Theatre, Theatre Deli and Green Shoes Arts, with over 2000+ audiences or participants.
