Being a Digital Producer

My name is Maya Gabrielle

I work in London, as the Senior Digital Producer for the National Theatre, and live in Brighton.

I sit on the Digital Strategy Committee for BAFTA and LIFT.

On this blog I post about the arts, digital, the National Theatre and anything else that tickles my fancy.

I love to talk at conferences and sit on panels, so check out my biography if you are looking for a digital rent-a-mouth. All thoughts and comments are happily my own and are not the opinions of any organisation I may be affiliated with.


Let's be social...

Cool stuff

For all the Shakespeare lovers out there. I’ve just published the Digital Exhibition on Shakespeare at the NT. It’s got Dame Judi, Anthony Hopkins, Lenny Henry, Daniel Day-Lewis and Derek Jacobi… what more could you want?

Thanks to the lovely gang at LIFT, I got to do Decoded’s ‘Code in a Day’ course. It was great. Refreshing old knowns that I’d ceased to question, and bringing me right up to date with current best practice and the smart approach to responsive design. I even built an app. I love learning.
