Below are the most recent organisations I have worked for. Please note this is not my full CV and if you would like a copy please contact me directly.
IGNITE - Lead producer on a play in a week working with a group of self-identified neurodiverse men who are residents of HMP Elmley, a Category B/C prison on the Isle of Sheppey. The group worked towards a performance on the last day to external guests, prison staff and other residents. I coordinated on all logistics; the budget and managing the rehearsal room.
London Bubble Theatre
Together with the Lead Artist, my aim and responsibilities are to ensure the artistic quality, smooth running and efficacy of the Older Adults’ Programme. This includes continuing the existing programme of weekly participatory workshops, one off events, sharings, trips and seeking opportunities for development which reflect members and sector feedback.
Currently I am working as a Producer in the Participation Team at the Almeida Theatre. I am working directly with the Director of Participation to set up a new programme of work to be taken into schools and performed on the Almeida stage with the focus of reaching as many young people as possible within Islington. This has been a mammoth task but one that has been incredibly rewarding and a programme of work that I feel I have left my legacy on. I’m really proud of the work I’ve done since joining the team; making theatre and the arts accessible is at the core of my practice and it’s been really rewarding working with exciting creatives to create this body of work, and aiding young people in gaining a strong understanding of the arts industry alongside exciting performance opportunities.
Barrel Organ Theatre Company
Previously I worked with Barrel Organ, a theatre company who are based in the North East of England as assistant producer. I worked across three projects for young people and the community to gain better access to the arts outside of London. We specifically worked with young people who feel their voices are not heard and are NEET. Working for this company has been so rewarding and to get a better idea of how the arts and theatre companies are working regionally.
Kestrel Theatre Company
I worked as assistant producer on Kestrel Theatre's R&D of YOUNGERS, a project exploring the ideas around age, hierarchy, mentors and respect. This was a devised piece by an intergenerational cast, 3 young men aged between 18-22 with experience of the youth justice system, and 3 older men who are out the other side of the adult justice system. I thoroughly enjoyed being brought on as producer for this piece working directly in the rehearsal room with the rest of the creative team, helping to bring this sharing to life. This was a brilliant insight to the work they make and telling why their work is so important; and I am excited to see the next steps of this piece.
Clean Break Theatre Company
Assisting the production team at Clean Break on their production of Through The Mist
The Old Vic Theatre
Education and Community Intern (later freelancer)
FTC supporting the Education and Community team on all the projects, in particular the Schools Club programme, training facilitators, workshop planning and observing in schools offering creative administrative and creative support. I continue to work for the team on a freelance basis; most recently assisting on the planning of Front Line Lambeth.
