In this one to one, Cara McAleese will talk through producing and project management questions, ideas and quandaries. You can talk basics, process, have a discussion about a specific project or idea, or anywhere in between. Cara has worked in a range of situations, from large-scale repertory to community arts, so hopefully we’ll spend the time together well.

About Cara McAleese:

Originally from London, I moved to Sheffield 3 years ago and am loving being in South Yorkshire. I produce, project manage, and consult on arts and health projects. I’ve worked in the arts for 20 years now, mainly in producing and project management.

I love a creative challenge, I love working in partnerships with non-arts organisations to place arts in what they do, and I love making sure top notch quality art is available to anyone and everyone.

It all started with music a long time before I started working and I’ve gone on a winding path from working in music publishing, putting on warehouse parties and playing gigs to working at the Royal Opera House for six years as a producer.

In 2014 I moved more into the area that I love – arts helping people feel good.

I’ve worked at Clod Ensemble’s Performing Medicine programme, then the London Symphony Orchestra’s Discovery Programme. From there I became programme manager for the award winning Meet Me at… creative programme for isolated adults in South London. I left to have a child and relocate to Sheffield. I’m now working at darts (Doncaster Community Arts) as an arts and health project manager, and it’s great to be part of such a key organisation in the region. Alongside this I work on freelance projects. Currently I’m working with Age Better in Sheffield/South Yorkshire Housing Association on their Moments of Joy programme, bringing music, dance and hopefully some joy to residents of extra care schemes.
