Arts Emergency

Alex McCorkindale

Creative Producer/Project Manager

I am an independent creative producer. I have over 11 years experience managing professional projects in the visual, performing and digital arts industries and specialise in facilitating arts projects for and with children, young people and communities. I am excited by work that brings together people, stories, ideas and spaces.

Since becoming freelance I have managed work in Holland, Dubai and Saudi Arabia and worked with Partners and collaborators like Polar Bear, Danny Boyle and The National Youth Theatre.

I didn’t continue in education after my GCSE’s and have developed my experience and career through hard work, mentors and some amazing opportunities and experiences. I want to be a mentor because I want to continue learning and collaboration and discussion is key. I learnt a lot from my mentors and hope that In turn I can inspire and support future and emerging arts managers.
