Personal statement

Rich Warren leads the team at Artswork Media, part of the Creative Media degree. Until recently he was the CEO at Encounters Film Festival, the UK's leading new and emerging talent festival, with more than 15 years of experience in the international talent development and moving image exhibition sector.  

He harbours a healthy curiosity with innovation and creative technology and the new opportunities these platforms offer moving image story tellers.  

Rich’s lived experience as a CODA provides a natural affinity to underrepresented voices and a desire to create equal opportunities for them within the cultural sector. He currently also sits on the board of trustees for Carousel and Bristol Festivals.
