Projects Administrator on hynt for Creu Cymru, the development agency for theatres and arts centres in Wales. Resident Marketing Officer for Theatr Pena.
A little more about me:
Previous work includes Participation Officer at National Dance Company Wales (10 years of service!), Venues Development Officer and Tour Booker for Theatr Pena and Digital Copy Writer for Wales Millennium Centre.
Based in Barry with my family and mad dog. Loved acting, don't have a chance to do it any more. Love watching theatre but am usually too poor and on mum-duty in the evenings to go to everything I fancy.
Want to make the arts accessible and enjoyable to all.
Projects I’m working on:
hynt, the national access scheme for theatres and arts centres. It's an Arts Council of Wales initiative managed by Creu Cymru in partnership with Diverse Cymru.
Just finished working on Theatr Pena's Research and Development for Woman of Flowers.
