Hello, I founded Metal in 2002 to champion the rights of artists and communities, and to act as a catalyst for change. I’m a theatre director by trade and have directed over 200 productions, and been Artistic Director of Battersea Arts Centre, West Yorkshire Playhouse and the Southbank Centre. As well as Metal I’ve founded a range of cultural organisations including The WOW Foundation, which runs WOW – Women of the World Festivals around the world, celebrating the achievements of women and girls and confronting global gender injustice. I split my time between London and the Kent coast, where I enjoy windsurfing and swimming in the sea.
