Current role: Senior Creative Producer

Joined FutureEverything in: November 2017

What you do at FutureEverything: My priority is to ensure the successful delivery of FutureEverything’s next big event, a 3 day ‘conference-as-lab’, in March 2018. I also provide creative leadership and direction on our future projects and strategy.

Talk to me about: Sustainable arts practice, co-production, design, placemaking, community engagement, strategy and fundraising.

Before FutureEverything: I am Co-Director of Placeshakers, a social enterprise which initiates projects aligned with the ‘maker movement’ and place. Much of my career has been about nurturing the creative ecology and creating a sustainable cultural infrastructure for Lancashire.

Outside of FutureEverything: My life outside of work revolves around my young family, I’m a mum of two cheeky monkeys and a furry one (dog!). I’m also working to complete a PhD (about placeshaking) before I retire!
