Sam Hunt | Creative Director | Waltham Forest, London Borough of Culture 2019

Sam Hunt has been working throughout the UK, across arts and culture for 15 years. In that time he has worked across multiple art forms, produced festivals, set up venues, worked as a creative producer and has been instrumental in creation and delivery of nationally significant cultural programmes, recently as Executive Producer of Hull 2017 UK City of Culture and is currently Creative Director of London’s first ‘Borough of Culture’ Waltham Forest 2019.

Sam is interested in the way arts and culture can respond to and alter a sense of place, shifting perceptions for the people who live there whilst defining the ambition of an area for those outside and a firm believer that great art can change lives for the better being a passionate advocate for central role of arts and culture should play within society.
