Lindsay Stockley
Head of Creative Programme

Hi, I’m Lindsay Stockley and I’m the Head of Creative Programmes.

In my role I lead on the development of all creative programmes including exhibitions, learning, talent development, events, social action, commissioning and producing.

I have a Masters in Cultural Policy and Management, and a BA (hons) in Fine Art: Time Based Arts. I’ve worked both on and off stage for over 20 years as a dancer, aerialist, and ringmaster in circus as well as a programmer, producer and director of circus and spectacular performance for events, festivals, and site-specific venues. Some previous productions or festivals I have worked on are Shambala Festival, Glastonbury Festival, City of London Festival, Arcadia Spectacular, Oily Cart theatre company, and Freedom Festival. I also used to be a professional DJ for club nights and events across the UK.

Creating a largescale theatre venue and programme for Shambala Festival under my company Sideways Arts was a proud moment for me.

Outside of work I enjoy helping people to bring their dreams and projects to life through being a certified Creative Business Coach.
