Finn WARMAN 

Artistic director / Ceo

@FinnWarman

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.

Assistant Producer

She is standing on the corner of the street, autumnal trees, cloudy blue skies, leaves on the grass and flats are in the background.

A Politics graduate from the University of Leeds (2019), Martha discovered their 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. They believe 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.

VOLUNTEERS

We work with a small but dedicated team of volunteers who give their time to help make our events so special. From decorating, to flyering, greeting our audiences, to selling tickets they are a vital part of what we do. We basically think our volunteers are wonderful and we’re very thankful for their contribution to our beautiful queer community. We’re always interested in working with new people, so if you’d like to get involved, drop us a line.
