Presenting, exhibiting and touring international and local dance makers across the UK
“Karen is what I’d describe as a force of nature! She’s hard working, tenacious, creative, passionate and always gets the job done.”
Director Open Culture
“Karen’s honest and direct feedback is helping us to develop and sharpen our vision. She brings a dynamic energy and insight into discussions, informed by her vast experience in the field. We feel supported and inspired by our exchanges. We’re grateful to notice a growing ease in the ways in which we are able to express what lies at the heart of our work.”
Working with Karen is a dream – her passionate, committed and thorough approach to all she does means artists and presenters know their work and the work they are booking is in the best possible hands. Her many years of experience and international contact base ensure she is always ahead of the curve – or creating the next one.
I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with Karen Gallagher for almost 20 years, in various capacities; as a board member when she brought her amazing energy and vision to MDI, working alongside her as a colleague in 2010 for MDI’s Year of Dance, and most recently I’ve been delighted to bring her expertise to The Arts Centre team to lead and drive forward our marketing campaign for our extensive season of dance.
