Jackie Friend

Marketing and Audience Development Manager

Following a degree in sculpture at St. Martin’s School of Art, Jackie had a baptism of fire at the Hackney Empire where she worked in Box Office, press and publicity. The Arts Council England rescued her with a touring marketing bursary and an internship (paid) at London Contemporary Dance Theatre and the David Glass Ensemble. Since then she has worked extensively with touring theatre and contemporary dance companies, festivals and on site specific events – with a 10 year break somewhere in the middle during which time she raised her children and became a Steiner mum.
