About our Project Manager
We are happy to introduce our new Project Manager, Meg (she/her). She will be working with us for 12 months to oversee most of the project phases of the filmpro with ten project, and her role is also funded by the Disability Justice Fund and the Trust for London.
Her career began back in 2018 when she studied Creative Producing for Digital Platforms at the National Film and Television School. She graduated in February 2019 and became disabled in April 2019, drastically altering her career.
Her career highlights include working as a Producer on the Museum of Austerity XR experience with director Sacha Wares, the National Theatre and the English Touring Theatre, working as the Project Coordinator on the podcast Equal Too: Achieving Disability Equality with HARDER THAN YOU THINK ahead of the Paralympic Games in Tokyo and being part of the team at BBC Voice and AI that created Beat the Bot, an AI voice controlled quiz.
Outside of work she is dedicated to learning more about accessibility in the arts and media sectors. In 2022 she completed the Introduction to Producing Course with Ramps on the Moon, Leeds Playhouse and Sheffield. In 2021 she completed the Accessing New Technologies course with the Young Vic, which combined theatre with VR and accessibility.
She tries to work within the theme of disability across sectors. Her writing on disability rights issues and culture have been featured in Vice, BBC Ouch, Stylist, Refinery 29 and Wellcome Stories.
In her free time she likes going to the gym, listening to podcasts, going to the cinema and theatre.
