Programmes Administrator

What's your role at 64 Million Artists, and what do you love most about it?

I am the Programmes Administrator. I love working with a brilliant team that I support in delivering great work.

What is your favourite way to get creative?

Lots of different ways depending on my mood - going to the theatre, writing, painting. Recently I've been trying to get more into making clothes - one stitch at a time!

Why is creativity so important to you?
