The arts give access points to different worlds and points of view, and at a time when our world seems so divided, working in an industry which values the importance of shared experience, empathy and fun feels important.
I work in the arts because of the incredible people who become colleagues, collaborators and friends. I am inspired everyday by the extraordinary minds of the people around me, and by the communities created both amongst theatre makers and audiences.
I work at Fuel because of the opportunity to work so closely with artists, to champion their individual journeys and to connect their stories with communities across the world. Fuel is responsive to the needs of artists and an ever-changing industry, and
allows producers to really engage with the creative process. I find that super exciting.
Also, you can wear anything you want to the office.
Before Fuel, I was Assistant Producer at the Lyric Hammersmith, working across all mainstage shows and touring productions. I also produced the Lyric’s outdoor theatre strand, and Little Lyric, a Studio season for ages 2-11.
I was a Producer on attachment to the Old Vic Theatre as part of Old Vic 12, and found a real passion for developing new work alongside emerging and established artists.
As an independent producer, I worked across a range of projects, particularly those focused on joining theatre with activism and social change.
I have also worked for the National Student Drama Festival, Paines Plough and Festival Republic.
