Eloise Tong is an arts Producer with a background in dance, theatre, outdoor arts and puppetry Eloise is passionate about developing relevant and innovative projects in theatre, dance and other creative industries and equipping artists with the tools they need to succeed. She was keen to provide creative opportunities, share her love of performance with local communities across the UK and ensure that affordable, high-quality performance is accessible to all.
At the start of the programme Eloise was coordinator for Surf the Wave (a national dance showcasing project) at Pavilion Dance South West. Her long-term ambition is to lead an arts management and production agency, providing services and advice to freelance artists and supports artists across the South West.
Due to this programme, I have had more success when applying for creative jobs and was offered several interviews and an internal promotion. My improved confidence helped me secure my full time post at Edge Arts University of Bath. The sessions taught me how to effectively respond to a brief and market myself successfully.
Eloise’s grew in confidence sufficiently to apply for and secure promotion to Arts Development Manager at Edge Arts, University of Bath full time post. She is now General Manager for Theatre Bristol.
