Project: reboot_ Leeds events (August 2015 – January 2019)

In parallel with my academic research about grassroots independent music in the North of England I took an active role as a cultural agent in the city of Leeds. As a founding member of reboot_ music events, I applied my experience as a musician and my academic knowledge about cultural production and the creative industries to running a 3-year long series of 14 events, largely designed to foster local talent, thus offering a stepping stone and network connections to newcomers.

Responsibilities: founding member; communications manager; resident musician; on-site event producer and manager; treasurer; liaison with guest DJs and partners; multi-platform and offline promotional strategies.
