The enlarged, enhanced Contact Theatre reopened to the public in September 2021

Contact leads the way in putting young people in control – they drive strategy, decision making and creative ideas. Along with extraordinary new live performance, the theatre’s work includes empowering young, local artists to lead creative projects in their communities; enabling young entrepreneurs to imagine and create viable social enterprises; and hosting vital conversations about life, illness, intimacy and why anything matters at all.

Contact urgently needed enhanced spaces to host all this activity. I worked with them from 2015 to plan and implement the early stages of the capital fundraising campaign, until a skilled fundraising team took the reins in late 2017. The £7m redeveloped theatre has just reopened.

“Anna was insightful, focused and motivated throughout the development of our capital campaign. Not only was the campaign successful, Anna also brought an ethical and caring approach to our work and engagement with young people. She took the time to understand deeply Contact’s values and motivations, and communicated these brilliantly to potential supporters, funders and stakeholders.”
