We are sad to announce the departure of Tom Higham, our Executive Director from the organisation.

Tom Higham joined FutureEverything as a producer 4 years ago, and quickly was promoted through senior management onto his role as Executive Director. During his time in this leadership role, the organisation has had some incredible successes with festivals from Singapore to Moscow, and the development of major projects such as Project Ukko, Light Barrier and ArtsAPI, and advising the Chinese Government on open data policy. Tom has also led initiatives to restructure the very essence of how our organisation works, leaving us stronger, more focused and with exciting opportunities at our horizon. Tom will formally leave us in July and is working closely with our incredible team to ensure a seamless handover of his not insignificant workload to them.

On behalf of myself as Founder, and the entire Board we would like to thank Tom for his incredible work, leadership and guidance during his time with us. He has become a friend to many of us within the organisation, and we know we will continue to work with him in some capacity in the future. Should you wish to reach Tom, his email address is: tom.higham@me.com.

This is an exciting time for FutureEverything, soon we will be announcing the launch of our two largest-ever projects, The GROW Observatory and CityVerve. We will soon be recruiting new roles in the company to deliver these, and we will have more information on this soon.

We wish Tom luck as he steps into ventures new, read his blog on his time at FutureEverything here, and visit his new personal website here.
