Performing Arts Producer and Manager Claire Morton collaborates with artists and organisations in order to create, develop and deliver. She brings over 12 years of extensive experience, knowledge and enthusiasm of working with a range of projects and artists across performing art-forms and the cultural sector.
Claire offers a variety of skills and services, bespoke to meet the unique needs of each client, project or production. Her portfolio ranges from independent artists to international touring companies. Carefully selecting each artist in the portfolio for the unique and rich work they bring, Claire is interested in a collaborative and creative dialogue, working alongside artists to make their project happen.
From 2008-2014, Claire co-directed Morton Bates Arts Services. During that time, MBAS helped to raise over £1.3m through Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts, secured over 750 performance bookings and delivered approximately 100 projects across its portfolio.
Claire holds a BA in Dance and Culture with Professional Training (University of Surrey) and a Masters Degree in Arts Management (City University, London) (Arts Humanities Research Council Award recipient), during which her research focussed on micro-organisational structures within the dance sector.
