Supporting creative communities
Hello! I’m Danielle – a community filmmaker and project coordinator. I support community groups on a range of creative projects in the North East of England. I’m absolutely adamant that every individual should have access to arts activities; whether their aim is to get out of the house to socialise, discover hidden talents, or indulge existing passions – I want to contribute to making that possible.
To achieve this, I support community groups, schools and charitable organisations develop project ideas and fundraise the cash to make their hopes become a reality. I work closely with committees and participants to ensure the project is tailored perfectly to the needs of the group, and I handle budgets, logistics, and the sometimes tricky territory of grant and funding requirements.
I work with numerous third sector and arts organisations as a freelance film facilitator and mentor. I support groups to develop their stories from script to screen, encourage people to make their voices heard, and raise important issues through film.
Although my background is filmmaking, projects have covered arts, gardening, dance, photography, crafts, music and much more. For project ideas or information on how I might be able to help, please do give me a ring – if it’s community based and creative, I’m in!
