Danielle is Watershed's Network Producer.
Danielle's work over the last 20 years has included festival producing, project management of a national strategic touring project, international tour management for commercial music acts, managing artist development programmes and programming live performance.
Organisations she has worked for include Southbank Centre, Lighthouse - Poole's Centre for the Arts, Pavilion Dance South West, Wide Awake Devon, Inside Out Dorset Festival, Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery, Arts University Bournemouth and The Dartington Hall Trust. She also founded the Bournemouth & Poole Creative and Digital professionals network and put on gigs in Devon as an independent live music promoter through her company, Assemble.
Immediately before joining the Watershed team, Danielle worked for Wandsworth Borough Council on arts and events in Nine Elms, one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe. That role included local engagement with schools, community groups and resident associations. She also brokered conversations between developers / landowners and artists / arts orgs, and managed partnerships with orgs including Battersea Arts Centre, Theatre503 and World Heart Beat.
Danielle is passionate about working with others to address how the creative industries can develop to ensure that people from working class / benefits class backgrounds are not excluded by structural barriers and are better enabled to access, participate in and work in the arts.
