Hello! I joined Metal in September 2019 as a Senior Project Manager for Estuary festival. Since then I have worked on special projects including the NetPark Wellbeing Project and initiating the Academy for Live Events Production. I am currently developing a cultural strategy for the South Essex Estuary Park, connecting with strategic partners and artist networks to grow opportunities for creativity across the region. My background is within curation, production, arts management and community engagement. The thing I love most about working at Metal is the forging of spectacular and memorable cultural programmes – often with the capacity to connect with human experiences in surprising and unexpected ways. One of my favourite moments was visiting all the pubs in South Essex to install Ruth Ewan’s ‘Mirrors for Princes’ artworks for Estuary festival!
