Who We Are
Who We Are
I founded Talkin’ Culture to support Arts, Craft and Heritage in response to severe austerity cuts including in higher education. Talkin’ Culture believes in equality and arts access for all which remains an urgent issue.
My experience draws on senior positions in broadcast, digital and higher education. Broadcast has included Head of Production for BSkyB Movies and three music series, Talkin’ Jazz, Blues and Music Legends for NBC Europe which included working across the USA. As Head of Digital at the UK’s largest screen agency I was also involved in diversity schemes with major media partners, BBC, ITV and leading drama companies. In higher education I have worked across a number of universities and an affiliated, specialist arts and conservation college. I have worked as a university Knowledge Exchange consultant and my work has included festival and production feasibility studies, co-designing and delivering an award winning, industry integrated university module and multiple client productions. For the last two years I have managed the digital output for The Bowes Centre at The Bowes Museum and managed the social media for arts organisation Northern Heartlands. I also managed Project Pyrenees, a land, arts, craft and social justice initiative. I’m pleased to have recently joined Luzid Lab, an award winning, creative collective for heritage, culture and positive social developments.
Previously, I have been selected for international innovation labs including Crossover Interactive and the XO Labs at The Sheffield Documentary Festival now the third largest festival in the world. I was Co-director of the touring Homeless Film Festival which included partnership development. Our Patrons included Oscar nominated actress Samantha Morton, poet and broadcaster Lemn Sissay, MBE, and the award winning, Oscar nominated film director, Lenny Abrahamson. I have also benefited from selection for screenwriting master classes with The Script Factory at The Göteborg Film Festival. In 2011, I was invited to No.10 Downing Street for contributing to ‘Building Britain’s Future.’ My aim is to do this through the arts, education and social justice.
