Maria Abbott, Communication & Engagement Assistant
East Durham Creates

In my role as Communication & Engagement Assistant for East Durham Creates, I have responsibility for supporting on marketing tasks as well as engaging audiences and delivering on event experience. I’ve been involved in various tasks that are focussed on engaging new audiences, from promotion to event production. When I’m designing a poster, writing a social media post or carrying out word-of-mouth marketing I keep in mind the target audience and think about the use of appropriate language and images to make the marketing welcoming and engaging. I’ve also gained experience in-the-field having worked on various East Durham Creates events including a contemporary art installation within a housing estate, a large-scale outdoor arts festival and a professional theatre tour in local community venues across East Durham.
