Bridie, Digital Communications Associate
“I believe in working with arts organisations that create experiences and opportunities that are accessible and non-exclusive. Upswing does not only that, but also works to develop the sector so that we and other organisations can learn from each other and evolve our work from the inside out. As a result our collective output continues to become even more valuable and relevant to the people we create work with and for.“
Bridie is a creative digital freelancer working in communications, graphic design, web design, marketing and administration.

Before joining Upswing, she was the Centre Manager for Sunshine International Arts – A leading carnival company and community arts centre based in South London.
