PR, marketing, profile and partnerships for arts, culture and heritage

What I do

I get stories in the news, publicise events, raise the profile of organisations, create a buzz online and make videos and other online content. I run training for arts and cultural organisations and individual artists. I also develop audiences, organise events, coordinate and produce engaging arts programmes across South West England and nationally.
