On joining the organisation Samantha stats: “I am thrilled to work with extraordinary artists like Fat Fruit (soon to premiere their newest work, Fart Fabulous at RISING), The Rabble (we are about to take the critically acclaimed show, YES!, To Vitalstastix), Amrita Hepi and Samara Hersch (who is part of the innovative new initiative, HYPERLOCAL, which reimagines the way that metropolitan venues support local artists to commission new work).
