Meet the Team and the Trustees

Over the last 18 challenging months, as well as managing to deliver a 2020 festival, and survive as an organisation, we’ve been shifting towards a model we think can thrive and flourish for the long term.

As part of this shift, we have restructured to a flexible, dynamic, core team producing ambitious, experimental work which challenges artists whilst engaging audiences from communities across the UK and internationally.

We are working to drive up the overall value of – and grow the global market for – our sector’s cultural output. We will proactively generate high-value opportunities across the UK and beyond via a razor-sharp focus on innovation and excellence. So, consider Mediale to be open for business everywhere, year-round.
