We’re excited about ATCM #SummerSchool18. The theme is ‘Excellence in Events Curation’ and its getting lots of interest across the industry.

Our opening speaker is Katy Fuller, Joint CEO and Creative Director of Hull City of Culture 2017. Hull achieved some great things last year, so join us for an exceptional learning opportunity to help you deliver the best events in the business.

Katy Fuller was Executive Producer for Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and, in January 2018, became Creative Director and Joint CEO of the company as it carries on as a permanent national arts organisation based in Hull.  Katy is responsible for delivering the creative programme with the purpose of commissioning a world-class and innovative programme, that reaches residents and attracts visitors.

Katy has over seventeen years’ experience in outdoor arts, festivals and site-specific projects and a career-long commitment to engaging the broadest possible audiences in cultural activity. For Hull 2017 she played a strategic role in scoping, developing and delivering the programme and led on a broad range of projects including curtain raiser, Place Des Anges, in 2016, where flying angels dropped a tonne of feathers on the audience’s head, One Day, Maybe, a significant new commission over five floors of a disused office block from site-specific theatre company dreamthinkspeak, Turner Prize 2017 at the Ferens Art Gallery and Land of Green Ginger, a groundbreaking citywide programme of new commissions - “Acts of Wanton Wonder” – united under one narrative, which reached a total audience of over 100,000 people. 

Prior to joining the team in Hull, Katy had worked on ambitious projects including Royal de Luxe’s The Sultan’s Elephant in London, Antony Gormley’s One & Other for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, La Machine’s 50-foot high mechanical spider for Liverpool’s Capital of Culture celebrations and The Great North Passion for the BBC.
