I’m Sophie Kirk and I’m the new Fieldworker for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire at Live & Local. I’m thrilled to be here! I’m looking forward to working with promotors to bring high quality shows to communities in the East Midlands. Alongside this new adventure with Live & Local, I also work on other exciting arts and community projects in the region – they have to be exciting, that’s my criteria for getting involved! I live back in my hometown of Lincoln, after many years of living in London, where I worked for The Poetry Society, Arts Council England and The Old Vic theatre among others. This followed a degree in English and then an MA in Irish Literature and Drama at University College Dublin. I love seeing audiences enjoying an event produced by amazing artists – that’s the best bit of the job.
I’m a live literature, theatre and folk music enthusiast, and in my spare time I’m really interested in photography and politics!
