As Associate Programmer with Barbican Contemporary Music, Marie travelled internationally to meet with artistic directors and programmers to learn about their work, and completed a three month programming secondment with Sydney Festival.
Barbican projects included Moondog at Midnight, The Long Count and curating their post show club nights. Sydney Festival projects included managing Hal Wilner’s production Rogue’s Gallery on the steps of Sydney Opera House, featuring Peaches, Pere Ubu’s David Thomas and Marianne Faithfull.
She has worked extensively with The Roundhouse, and produced the frieze live music programme in 2010 featuring Telepathe, Hype Williams, Baby Dee and James Blackshaw. Previously she programmed the now defunct live music venue The Spitz, which promoted cross-genre, experimental music.
Marie researched and co-authored Create’s report on the legacy and design of the Queen Elizabeth Park post the 2012 Olympics. She also devised and delivered a course on curating for young people as part of the National Trust’s Trust New Art initiative in 2012.
