Hannah is co-director and founder of Moving Art Management.
She is also the Manager for the CAT Programme at Dance City supporting gifted and talented young dancers to access high level training in the North East.
Hannah, originally from the Midlands, moved to Newcastle in 2010 and loves living in the North East and is passionate about culture in the region.
Sophie is an early-career creative producer from the North East whose work is rooted in the region’s cultural scene. From initially training in dance, Sophie developed a passion for artist support and making things happen. In 2020 she was awarded support from Dance City towards her professional development and producing practice, and has since begun to freelance and gain experience across a variety of roles and independent projects
"I became an associate artist at a time when I wasn't quite sure what my next artistic or professional step would be.
But working with Rachel over the past year has been an overwhelmingly positive experience. Her expertise, insight and experience in the sector has allowed me to confidently step into leading my own projects. Rachel is an honest, genuine and committed professional who has helped open new doors for me in the dance sector, something I couldn't have done without the help of Moving Art Management. I couldn't recommend working with them enough!".
