About

The Company

Blackwinged Creatives, founded in 2014, is a young and dynamic practice in arts management and producing. We have been working with artists who cross boundaries of culture, geography and creative disciplines, in the UK and internationally.

We are based in London, the heartbeat of Europe’s creative scene, where the diversity of artistic voices in the city never fails to amaze. Keeping ourselves on the pulse, we attend a variety of performances, exhibitions and events, from small-scale grassroots work to large productions by established institutions.

Projects Associates Programme

About the Programme

At Blackwinged Creatives, our project associates programme is a way of providing young talent an entry to arts management. It is a full time position for 12 months where associates receive a generous professional development budget and are encouraged to find their voices as arts managers and producers.

Our previous Projects Associates went on to secure job offers from Blackwinged Creatives clients as well as work with artists who they believe will make a difference to the arts ecology.

GABRIEL SZALONTAI
(2015-16)

Originally from Romania, Gabriel studied art and linguistics before relocating to London in 2009. After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Dance Performance from Middlesex University, Gabriel sought to build a career in dance production and arts management. He pursued his dreams by partaking in a number of further education courses, which broadened his creative palette and opened new doors within the industry. Inspired by ever-advancing technology, he is always keen to merge the old and new; art meets science.
