About Us

Susanne Burns

Rivca Burns

I am a producer, curator and consultant for arts events and festivals. Festival manager to Sounds From the Other City and freelance coordinator for Chorlton Arts Festival, Future Everything and Indy Man Beer Convention.


I have a passion for social media and a flair for marketing that has been consistent throughout my freelance work as programme prodcuer and team leader at Islington Mill and marketing manager at Common, Fuel and The Gaslamp, Manchester.


Recently, I have begun developing my consultancy and funding work. Having been successful in three seperate Grants for the Arts bids and a 1.2 million pound capital bid in my time at Islington Mill. I have recently conducted a Feasibility Study for an event and am rapidly growing my knowledge and experience of this type of work.
