CREATIVE DIRECTOR, AT-BRISTOL SCIENCE CENTRE

Anna Starkey

I look after the content and vision of a top UK interactive Science Centre, At-Bristol.

 

 

This happily draws on all the things I've done on my zigzag path that brought me here....

 

I've been freelance in TV for 15 years, screenwriting, producing live broadcasts for TV and cinema, and directing images and voices. Quite often, all of this happened at once.  

I've also lectured on antimatter as the UK Particle Physics Outreach Officer, been Creator of Impossible Projects for Lottolab Studio, the world's first public perception laboratory, and I've performed sketch and stand up comedy.

I originally dreamt of being an astronaut but meantime, connecting the dots between ideas in science and the arts is the thing that makes work feel like life rather than just a job.
