Current role: Producer
Joined FutureEverything in: I have been dipping in and out of the company in a freelance capacity since 2013.
What you do at FutureEverything:
My core concern is the FAULT LINES programme, I oversee all aspects of the cohort management and lead the production of any art and project commissions related to the programme. In addition I consult on the creative programming and production of the festival activity.
Previous FutureEverything projects I have led on include Future Makers, an education programme with Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, the exhibition Quantum Entanglement as a part of FutureEverything Moscow, and the Signals of Tomorrow showcase at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore.
Talk to me about: Data, art, death and vegan pizza.
Before FutureEverything: I have worked with the teams at the Museum of Science & Industry, Manchester Science Festival, MadLab and the MMU Fashion research department. The other half of my working background is in music venue management and festival production, and I have worked on the teams for festivals such as Sounds from the Other City, Kendal Calling and Manchester International Festival.
Outside of FutureEverything: I have an interest in the impact of digital culture on death culture, and I run The Death Forum, an organisation concerned with how artists, researchers and the funeral industry are responding to the changing shape of death culture in the digital age. In addition I teach event management at BIMM.
