Event Design, Development & Delivery
I can produce your show, festival or event from conception to completion. My roles change from project to project, and so I can create considered and tailored event design plans which include everything from site layout and crowd management plans to timelines and budgets. I work across the UK and I'm currently based in the Midlands. Take a look at the festivals and events I've been involved with recently.
Production & Site Management
I specialise in outdoor arts and cultural events taking place in urban environments or green spaces including bus depots, shopping centres and markets, galleries, conservation areas, and inside taxis. Whether I am working in an Event, Site or Production Management capacity, I ensure integrated, efficient and safe planning and delivery. I'm no stranger to hard graft and have worked as part of site crews, stage managers, area managers and trader managers.
Producing & Programme Curation
My passion is taking culture, arts and events to people's doorsteps - fostering pride in their local area and enabling cultural ambition. I work predominantly in outdoor arts and when I'm not working a festival, you can usually find me attending one. Over years of curatorial work on a portfolio of varied programmes, I have a developed a wide network of artists, companies and creatives to recommend for a range of audiences, themes, sites and festivals.
Lecturing & Speaking
I am an Associate Lecturer at BIMM Institute Birmingham and have previously taught modules to undergraduate students in Event Concept & Design (focusing on all elements of event design, including sustainability planning, access provision, programme curation, stakeholder management and more) and Events & The Audience (understanding crowd psychology, crowd control, H&S legislation, understanding audiences and historical event incidents). I have previously spoken on various panels, including chairing sessions on Crowd Psychology, Local Authorities & Events and Safe Event Production in a Mid-Pandemic World. Do get in touch if you are looking for guest lecturers, panelists and speakers.
Access in Outdoor Arts
I am committed to making welfare and accessibility a priority across all projects I am involved with. Currently, I am learning British Sign Language with an aim to collaborate more with D/deaf audiences.
