Currently Digital Programmes Manager at London’s V&A and Head of New Media Arts for Watermans, Irini will join the FutureEverything team in October. Her appointment comes as our company Founder, Drew Hemment, moves to a key strategic role on the FutureEverything Board.
An accomplished curator, producer and cultural figure, Irini has worked at the forefront of digital culture for many years and has led a number of exciting, high profile initiatives, including the annual Digital Performance festival for Watermans, and the V&A’s Digital Design Weekend and Digital Futures (here she is talking Digital Futures at TDC16). Irini is also the co-founder of Maker Assembly and an Art & Design Associate with Mozilla.
Here are a few words from Irini:
“I am thrilled to be joining FutureEverything, a leading and inspirational organisation that has been producing and presenting groundbreaking work for so many years. I am also very excited to be moving to the vibrant and creative city of Manchester, a world capital of the arts. I look forward to working with the talented FutureEverything team and the community in Manchester, but also in the rest of the UK and internationally, to forge new connections, enable new ideas to develop, and open new ground for critical conversations about the potential and impact of technology, innovation and digital culture today.”
