Using knowledge of practising artists, across art forms to obtain appropriate proposals.
Advising on possible collaborators and brokering relationships between proposed commissioned artists and other external partners.
Proposing work using a curatorial overview rather than just based on the merits of the individual piece.

Taking a curatorial approach to the planning of the programme with the audience experience at the forefront.
