Soon to be a graduate of the Arts University Bournemouth, both educational and practical endeavours have allowed Amy to build a flexible skill set to continue a career in the creative, events, and entertainment industries. Taking on the role of a creative production assistant in 2015, she worked on the pre-production of major UK festivals over a six month period, and is currently working on the production and co-ordination of an experiential dining concept. Adopting an academic approach to the analysis of the arts, particularly fashion, within the research section of her degree work, Amy's thinking processes expand from event coordination, management, and production to considering the theoretical frameworks and industry trends that inform creative concepts and audience connection.
