I am a dedicated arts producer living in Bristol and working across the U.K. and internationally.

Over the last 8 years I have worked in a variety of roles with a focus on creating the conditions for new, playful and imaginative work to emerge.

My practice as a producer is led by a motivation and commitment to support artists, producers and organisations to be the best they can be.

Having co-founded Wide Awake Devon, been a founding member of Kaleider and through my work as an Executive Director and Trusteeships, I have built up skills in producing, touring and fundraising across the national and international arts sector.

I am also part of the Clore Alumni having been selected for a Clore Emerging Leaders course in 2014.

If you are interested in collaborating then please get in touch.

I am always looking for new opportunities to collaborate so  if you would like to talk further. 

My role is to be the person that you turn to, to make things happen – whether it’s a piece of work, funding strategy, tour, event, business plan, a friendly face that’s needed, I can be there to guide, support and take a your ambition to the next level. 

Every artist, organisation or project requires a tailored and bespoke set of skills and approach. In order to give a sense of the kind of producer I am, I have outlined the skills I can bring below:

IDEA DEVELOPMENT

Whether it’s talking through an idea out loud for the first time, or testing something out in a rehearsal room, I can offer bespoke producer support during an artwork or project’s conception involving critical feedback and practical and logistical advice. 

PRODUCER DEVELOPMENT 

Since 2010 I have been committed to finding new ways to support the development of emerging and established producers. You can read more about this here. 

PROJECT & EVENT MANAGEMENT 

I am thoughtful, considered and have exceptional planning skills which allow me to deliver projects and events of a variety of scales to a high standard. 

PROGRAMMING 

I have curated festivals and venue programmes and have a good knowledge of contemporary work touring nationally and internationally. 

TOUR BOOKING AND MANAGEMENT

  • 7 years experience managing and booking tours nationally and internationally (USA, Australia, China, Europe).
  • Site specific/responsive work
  • Non traditional theatre spaces 
  • Studio and mid scale venue tours 
  • Outdoor work
  • Strong connections with venues and programmers nationally and internationally.
  • Touring strategies 

FUNDRAISING 

  • Grants for the Arts
  • NPO
  • Strategic Touring
  • Artist International Development Fund
  • Large Trusts & Foundations (such as Esmee Fairbairn)
  • Small Trusts & Foundations (such as Ernest Cook Trust)
  • Heritage Lottery Fund
  • Research 
  • Local Authority 
  • Sponsorship

FINANCIAL PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT

I have set and managed budgets of all shapes and sizes with multiple types of income stream. I like to think of budgets as a way of telling the story of a project. I can help you with:

  • Budget setting/designing – projecting and forecasting
  • Cashflow management 
  • Management accounts 
  • Financial reporting to funders/partners/stakeholders/Board members

ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT 

I have experience seeking out and implementing effective communication networks within organisations as well as looking at processes and systems for efficient delivery of projects that support the capacity available. 

I can support companies or individuals to set goals and look at what steps to take in order to achieve growth/ambition etc. I have a good understanding of governance and the benefits and challenges to different company set ups. 

MENTORING/PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

I can offer mentoring to emerging theatre and dance companies and emerging producers. This could be face to face or via skype initially and then if continued, email and phone contact is also possible. 

TEA DRINKING PARTNER 

Sometimes what you really need is to have a cup of tea and a good old natter – I am always keen to meet new people, and build on the relationships I already have, so if you fancy a cuppa let me know.
