Platform welcomes Matt Addicott as new Arts Manager

28 Jul 2021

We are excited to announce the appointment of Matt Addicott as Platform’s new Arts Manager.

Matt has been working with Platform (Glasgow East Arts Company) as an artist and administrator since 2009, helping deliver a diverse and exciting range of events and activities for local audiences across North East Glasgow and beyond.

Arriving in Easterhouse as an Artist in Residence with Platform and Starcatchers - Scotland’s Arts and Early Years organisation, Matt has directed more than a dozen new and original live performances at the venue for audiences of all ages.

In recent years he has led on the planning and delivery of the performance programme at Platform; managing youth theatre groups; bringing theatre, dance and performance to the venue and supporting artists and production companies to develop their work.

Matt took over the reins on Monday 19 July from outgoing Arts Manager Jenny Crowe, who has been appointed as Senior Arts Manager at Tramway.

Matt said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have been appointed as the new Arts Manager and very excited to start working with colleagues and partners from across the community to continue the excellent work of Glasgow East Arts Company at Platform.”

Wendy Niblock, Vice Chair, Glasgow East Arts Company added: “We are delighted to appoint Matt Addicott as Arts Manager. Matt impressed the whole panel with his passion, knowledge and huge commitment to Glasgow East Arts Company.

“It was a unanimous decision that he was the best candidate to lead the organisation in the next chapter of its journey. On behalf of my fellow Board Directors, we are very much looking forward to working with Matt.”

Bidding Jenny good wishes for her new role, the Platform team is thrilled to welcome Matt as Arts Manager and looks forward to working with him as the organisation moves forward.
