Jonathan May


Jonathan is a multi art-form programmer and creative producer. From Tate’s Turbine Hall, to building-wide takeovers in Bogota, Jonathan’s work commissioning and producing spans theatre, installation and participatory contexts. Jonathan has worked with artists, producers, designers and thinkers across the globe with commissions in Europe, MENA, South Asia and the Americas.
Currently a Clore Fellow, Jonathan works as part of British Council’s Creative Economy team, his work is focussed on developing and commissioning new projects and global programmes which explore digital culture, cross-disciplinary practice and social engagement. Through this work he has forged a global network of some of the most radical and forward thinking producers, makers and doers in the cultural sector, exploring arts practice in non-arts context.
