Art is more than an instrument in this process. It’s the nature of it."

Love International and Breaking Bread.

Her experience also includes working as Tour Manager for Mulatu Astatke and lending her expertise as an Artist Administrator & Accreditation manager to world-renowned festivals: Glastonbury Silver Hayes, Boomtown, Envision Festival and Simple Things.

SUSTAINABILITY

We use the Three Pillars as a framework to ensure our decisions are in line with our ethos of sustainability; Social, Environment and Economy.

 

We promote a REFUSE - REDUCE - REUSE - REPURPOSE - RECYCLE mind frame to creatively re-think our environment, habits and patterns in our year-round activities and opperations.

SOCIAL CHANGE

There is no sustainable world without social justice, it's intersectional work.

 

We promote transparency and accountability and we are enthusiastic critical thinkers and relentless optimists. Wellbeing and mental health are part of our core ethos, particularly when it comes to touring.
