Career Path: Founder, Curious Monkey

Amy Golding _alumniCurious Monkey

An organisation creating new opportunities for students is Curious Monkey founded by Amy Golding. After several enjoyable years with Live Theatre (one of Northumbria’s key cultural partners), Amy was looking for a new challenge. Curious Monkey was born to bring together her love of working in community settings and the professional directing experience gained at Live.

The company brings to life stories that deserve to be told, and this has taken Amy as far as South Africa to work with young women from the Eastern Cape creating a production that was performed at South Africa’s National Arts Festival and within a number of male prisons. Amy points out that the course at Northumbria provided her with a strong grounding for her professional career. She said: “Having practical experience, accessing rehearsal space and delivering projects in the community during my time at Northumbria really set me up for the world of work”.

The practical facilitation, as well as covering topics such as fundraising, evaluation, production and management – all crucial skills require to take on many roles – added a real edge to Amy’s graduate CV. She added: “I urge Performing Arts students to make the most of their university days and the vast range of resources on offer at Northumbria.”
