Laura Sweeney

Laura Sweeney is an independent producer working in live art and performance. She is currently working with Brian Lobel, Dan Watson, La JohnJoseph, Malik Nashad Sharpe, Nando Messias & Rachael Young. These artists’ work has a diverse thematic scope which intersect around identity, gender politics, and personal narratives.

Her practice as a producer is centred around artist development and sustainability, focusing on strategic thinking and shifting mindsets to long-term planning.

Laura’s Jerwood bursary will support a programme of training and coaching. Through considering a best practice approach to her position as a freelancer, Laura will take valuable time out from delivery to receive training in areas of diversity and inclusion, and digital design. She will also work with a coach to strategise around the sustainability of her own practice.
