I am Joanna, I am a creative art, theatre, and events specialist. I freelance as a Festival Director, Producer, Events and Production Manager. I specialise in producing innovative stand out events and productions with impact and I bring a creative, thoughtful flair to all the projects and events that I work on.
WHY CHOOSE ME?
I can provide you with comprehensive solutions. Whether you’re looking for someone to produce your show, festival or event from conception through to completion, or you would just like some help with one aspect of your project, I am the person for you.
I’ve worked in the art and events industries for over 10 years. My experience ranges from producing theater, music, arts and festivals, arts fundraising and development through to project and production management for outdoor events and large public art installations, as well as producing events for commercial companies and agencies such as press launches, award ceremonies, and firework displays. I also now work as a sessional and guest lecturer for The University of Westminster and London Southbank University.
Having worked across the UK and Europe I have an extensive network of arts, event, entertainment and technical service contacts who I can call on and collaborate with to produce high-quality arts projects, productions, outstanding experiences and events that people want to talk about.
I pride myself on keeping my rates reasonable and affordable. I can work with you charging day rates or hourly rates to fit your project’s requirements. Just get in touch with me via the form on my contact page, I’m always happy to have a chat.
