Hello, I’m Michael Burkitt – Senior Producer at Absolutely Cultured. In my role, I lead on the development of all creative programmes including exhibitions, learning, talent development, events, social action, commissioning and producing.
Before this I was Young Artists Programme Manager at the Royal Drawing School and lead the first ever Art & Design Foundation Programme in Latin America.
I have a Masters in Contemporary Art Practice and have worked as an artist, curator and educator for 14 years, specialising in live and performance art. I have shown work across the UK, Europe and Latin America, in internationally acclaimed galleries such as Tate Modern and outdoor festivals like Light Night, Leeds.
Establishing cross-sector partnerships in my hometown to open a cross-artform project space and studios to support freelancers is something I’m proud of. Topped by becoming a Dad in the first national lockdown.
I also have a passion for Fringe Theatre and Cabaret!
