I am an experienced Producer, Teacher and Theatre-maker with thirty years post qualifying experience, currently doing a PhD on Bussing Out, please use the link below for more information. I have worked with BBC Radio Drama, London International Festival of Theatre (LIFT), Ankur Productions in Glasgow, Contact Theatre in Manchester, Kali Theatre in London and M.A.C in Birmingham. I can persuade and influence, have strong leadership skills and deliver successful outcomes. I bring my knowledge of the evolving cultural sector, my credibility and my network of artists, communities and institutions in Yorkshire and the North.
I would like to be part of the Management Committee of The Millan Centre as I believe Management should be representative of the local demographic, which like myself is predominantly working class Asian and Muslim. I have lived in the immediate vicinity most of my life and close family members have benefitted from the services. I wish to ensure services continue, are appropriate to the needs of local women and are successful.
