From 2012 until early 2019 she was Producer of the public realm cultural programme Quays Culture at Salford Quays/ MediaCityUK. Her experience includes new commissions and presentations across galleries, theatres, cinema and public spaces in the buildings and outdoor locations. She is experienced in working across performance, dance, digital art, music and visual art for venues, festivals, corporate partners and the public sector.
