I moved to Manchester from Leicester in 2013 to study Contemporary Performance at Salford. We were encouraged to see as much live work as possible, so I came along to as many shows at Contact as I could afford. In 2014 I was invited to perform in SHIFT Festival at Contact with Facade Theatre. I remember standing on the stage in Space 1 for the first time in the dress rehearsal and thinking ‘this is one of the best days of my life.’
I continued coming to watch shows at Contact and then applied to join Re:Con, the young producing and programming team in 2017.
I applied to join the Board because Contact has made me who I am, and I’d like to contribute to the work they do. As a Trustee, I saw the opportunity to support Contact, whilst also ensuring that the work that is done here is innovative and forward thinking. I’m really keen to develop my leadership skills and joining the Board will definitely help me in doing that.
