Stella joins us at an important and exciting moment - after almost four decades of iconic, inspiring programming, LIFT is embarking on the next significant chapter of the organisation’s life following the appointment of Kris Nelson as our Artistic Director & CEO in 2018.
Stella will bring her extensive expertise to lead the team towards and beyond our next festival in June 2020, as we develop new and existing local, national and international partnerships and create the context for daring and resonant artistic projects to come to life.
LIFT loves to party so we couldn’t be more excited that one of our smash-hit shows from last year’s festival is back and on the road this summer - bringing some of that Tottenham magic on a national tour and to a town near you!
LIFT's Artistic Director Kris Nelson reflects on his recent trip to Brazil's MIT Festival in São Paulo - of being submerged in its beautiful urban architecture, the warmth and generosity of the people he met and the defiance and unity of the artists he saw and heard from.
In October 2018, Virgin Group invited LIFT to shake up their annual global CEO gathering. They asked us to curate a programme of immersive, artistic interventions that would relay experiences of empathy for an audience of over 50 CEOs and Human Resources Directors from around the world.
