Freelance Events Producer
I co-produced Craft Council’s project “Common Threads” a 3-day exhibition featuring crafts with a focus on African Caribbean culture. I liaised with over 30 artists ensuring delivery of all their artwork, bios and artwork descriptions, and was their main point of contact. Supported the promotion of the event, ensuring deadlines were being met, maintained communications with partners and venue owners. I then was involved in the preparation of the launch of the event and then hosting it. After the event I also produced the second part of the project “Common Thread: The Talk” a panel talk on the creative industries, for which I was involved in talent research, venue research, liaising with the talent, planning the event and executing the event on the day.
Produced the series: “What’s your craft” 6 episodes of short films featuring inspiring craft makers across the UK. I worked with the director and the video-editor, in preparing the shoots, liaising and coordinating with the talents, interviewing the talents on a shoot, supporting the social media campaigns in sponsoring the episodes. Building schedules, timelines and ensuring the overall success and delivery of the episodes.
