Artistic director / Ceo
Finn is passionate about sharing their love of queer culture; because representation matters, and seeing aspects of their life reflected in film, music and performance has been the catalyst to accepting their own queerness. Finn founded Andro & Eve to make space for better representation and put community first.
Finn has a worked as an artist, workshop facilitator and producer in the cultural and education sector for 15 years. Specialising in large – scale participatory arts projects, they have a wealth of experience in partnership working, project management, leadership and communications.
Finn programmes and produces each project for Andro and Eve and facilitates our training and workshop offer. A huge fan of all things drag kings, Finn can often be found seeking out live performance and gigs across the North of England.
This role is currently held by Martha Adebambo.
A recent Politics graduate from the University of Leeds (2019), Martha discovered her love for activism and art through volunteering as a Liberation Coordinator and working for various arts and in third-sector organisations whilst on her year in industry. This work involved organising and delivering events, workshops and talks that celebrated and empowered people with marginalised identities.
Martha is passionate about representation, wellbeing and youth work. She believes it is important to constantly celebrate and showcase the diversity within queer and non-white communities and how the two intersect.
Martha enjoys skateboarding, cooking, listening to music, shooting on analogue film and dancing around her room.
