I am an artist, writer and producer, working across the fields of performance, theatre and visual art. I produce events and publications as co-director of COPY, an artists publishing platform delivering writing and publishing projects. I write poetry, reviews and creative texts and prose. My writing and my artwork often overlap.
I also work in a freelance capacity as an arts marketing and communications manager and consultant. Offering services including project and event management, press, marketing and communications, copy writing and editing, as well as audience development and engagement work. I work with organisations on planning, delivery and evaluation and have a creative approach, using a mixture of on and off-line activities to reach new and existing audiences. With over 10 years experience in writing plans and strategy for arts organisations and educational institutes, I am able to offer bespoke marketing, press and social media campaign plans for both small and large budgets, long and short term time frames. Most recently I have worked with Freedom Studios, Mafwa Theatre, Third Angel, Red Ladder Theatre Company, Unlimited Theatre and Yorkshire Dance.
My work often involves producing and managing events. I am the Producer of Leeds based theatre company Speak Woman Speak. I have produced everything from panel discussions, networking events, live performances, festivals and multi-disciplinary events in a range of settings.
I am available to deliver talks and workshops on independent publishing, writing for and as live art and my work with COPY.
