Danielle has worked in the arts for over 19 years, mainly as a multi-artform Producer, Project Manager and Tour Manager. Having started her career in the South West, working in the ticket office at her then local arts centre Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts, she has since worked for organisations including Southbank Centre, The Dartington Hall Trust and Pavilion Dance South West.
Danielle currently works for Watershed and Pervasive Media Studio as Network Producer. She recently worked for Wandsworth Council on the arts and events programme in Nine Elms, one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe.
Earlier in her career, Danielle’s work in Plymouth included producing live music events at Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery (now The Box Plymouth), assisting on the production of a site-specific dance tour of the city by US choreographer Stephan Koplowitz, and promoting Theatre Uncut here at the Barbican Theatre.
What I hope to bring to the Barbican Theatre’s Board: A passion for working with others to address how the creative industries can develop to ensure that people from working class / benefits class backgrounds are not excluded by structural barriers and are better enabled to access, participate in and work in the arts.
