I have worked in the creative industries for over 25 years and have successfully delivered hundreds of creative projects for a broad range of public and private sector clients and have a reputation for a creative, yet down-to-earth approach that effectively engages people in high quality cultural activities.
Bringing the arts, culture and heritage in all its forms to a wider audience, helping people to access amazing personal creative opportunities, breaking down the barriers to participation and being unfazed by very complex programmes, are key strengths I bring to my work.
My experience is wide ranging and encompasses the full creative and education spectrum. I have devised and delivered projects across all visual and performing art forms, from complex outdoor touring events for the BBC and the redesign of a hospital intensive care waiting area to professional development mentoring for artists and establishing music programmes for young people in the youth justice system.

I just wanted to say well done for the event! I thought you managed to balance the school days, the festival and the commission really well, keeping the partners happy and delivering a great event for the young people. You should be really pleased with what you achieved, you did a great job, from my point of view everything went really smoothly and was well organised. I know that you’ve worked incredibly hard to make the event a success, thanks so much it’s really appreciated. Thanks again!
Education & Events Manager, BBC Blast
I was delighted at the collaboration with the Royal Opera House and many thanks for showing me round all the Blast activities. It was a complex and logistical project, however I am sure that all the different audiences took away something really memorable. Well done to you and your team…it’s great to have set the bar high and achieved a victory!

The library project has been really special for the whole school, it was like finding a Christmas present we’d forgotten to open, thank you.
Teacher, East Tilbury Infants School
Well done Allison. It all looked great and very well managed congratulations on keeping your cool and being very effective in getting things organised and delivered. Nice to work with you again.
I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of my students for a fantastic day. They were all so enthused and spent the next day showing anyone (I really mean it) who they could find their storyboards and films. It was brilliant and many thanks for all of your hard work. I hope we can work on something again in the future.
