I am a 25 years old Art Curator and Creative producer based in Birmingham. Over the past three years I have worked on various creative projects predominantly in the fine art sector as a curator and organiser including on programmes with the Herbert art gallery and Ort Gallery. More recently I have commenced my emergence as a film and theatre producer.
My curatorial practice uses an interdisciplinary methodology with an emphasis on film as an inclusive medium. I have curated and co-curated art exhibitions including “Survivor’s guilt” (2021), “Vermillion coloured stories” (2022) and “Epiphany temporaire” (2023).
From June 2021 to June 2022, I worked as assistant producer, project manager, marketing lead and production administrator for “Pocket-sized revolution” a touring solo theatre show, funded by The Birmingham Rep sir Barry Jackson fund.
I am currently developing “Logic and Gut”, a Creative Intellectual Property development and Production company.
