Sarah, General Manager

“Having followed Upswing’s work for years I am delighted to be joining the team as General Manager. I have a passion for bringing the arts to new audiences and communities and I’m inspired by Upswing’s commitment to supporting and presenting the work of under-represented artists. I’m really looking forward to working on Common Ground and finding ways to share our work more widely as we create ambitious and inspiring digital and live performances”.
