I am responsible for developing and leading the PR and Marketing strategy for Create Jobs, a leading employability programme powered by A New Direction for young Londoners. Our vision is for a dynamic and diverse creative workforce. Through our programmes we are transforming London’s workforce by supporting and developing individuals who are underrepresented in the creative and digital industries.
A world-class arts and learning organisation, the Barbican pushes the boundaries of all major art forms including dance, film, music, theatre and visual arts. I promoted and supported its creative learning programme which further underpins everything it does through youth development, education programmes and community engagement. I also managed and supported it’s two major audience development schemes; Young Barbican and Beyond Barbican. Young Barbican develops audiences aged 14-25 through its discount scheme, access to creative opportunities and special events. Beyond Barbican builds audiences and their access to creative opportunities in east London through its large-scale events Walthamstow Garden Party, Barbican OpenFest and others.
