David Micklem

An experienced producer, cultural leader and strategic thinker with a demonstrable track record in supporting artists, delivering significant arts projects and influencing policy. With considerable experience as a producer, programmer and arts leader he has played a central role in some of the most talked-about performance projects of the last decade including Punchdrunk’s mould-breaking The Masque of the Red Death, Royal de Luxe’s The Sultan’s Elephant, BAC’s One-on-One Theatre Festival and WildWorks’ BABEL.

David’s key strengths include a producer’s eye for world-class new talent, a formidable track-record as a fundraiser and a leader’s ability to create a powerful sense of community amongst the artists, staff and audiences with whom he works. He is a passionate advocate for the role of creativity at the centre of civic society and in theatre’s ability to forge both temporary and lasting communities.

David is also a writer. His first novel The Winter Son is currently under submission. He is represented by Robert Caskie at Caskie Mushens http://www.caskiemushens.com/authors/#/david-micklem-1/

How the Fellowship impacted me

I've grown since doing my Clore course - in confidence, in the extent of my networks, in the diversity of projects and clients I have worked on and with.
