About me

I’m a London based creative events and arts programme producer passionate about widening access within the arts as well as curating environments that nurture and create space for creative and cultural exchange.   I have spent the last five years supporting programmes that give emerging creatives and artists opportunities and agency to encourage their own cultural participation and creative learning, working with a range of cultural and educational organisations including the Southbank Centre, Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) A New Direction (AND) and Tate. As well as freelancing on a range of different projects, I also work as the Friday Late Programme Producer at the V&A and Visual Arts Production Manager at Brainchild Festival, a small DIY music and arts festival in East Sussex. I am part of London collectives BBZ, Touching Bass and Finding Soul.
