Plymouth Music Zone has welcomed its newest Trustee to help the charity harness the real power of emerging technologies that both support the creative practice of participants and enable the organisation to share its learning on an international stage. Much of the work of Creative Technologist, Christopher Hunt, involves supporting artists, businesses and academics across the South West. Christopher is also at the centre of the local digital community as a Director of Digital Plymouth. He has been working with PMZ’s Digital Orchestra for the past 2 years to help extend their work with visuals, data and accessible interfaces. He is now keen to support increasing PMZ’s role in a city that is now in prime position to become an international hub for creative innovation.
Christopher Hunt says he’s delighted to join the PMZ Board as part of the team.
“For 20 years, Plymouth Music Zone has been doing amazing work and having a huge impact. It’s a charity filled with love and enthusiasm for music, and joining as a Trustee is an utter privilege. I’ll be bringing my skills to support the whole organisation to make the most of creative and emerging technologies with the humanity PMZ brings to its work. The team is a huge, supportive family who make a real and valuable impact. Walking into the space, you just feel the love and appreciation for the work that happens here.”
Plymouth Music Zone’s Chief Executive, Debbie Geraghty, says it’s the perfect time to welcome Chris.
“The sheer depth of Christopher’s expertise in the digital field and beyond is quite mind-boggling. He straddles the arts, academic, business and charity sectors with such enviable ease and a powerful passion that truly matches our mission at every level. We’re incredibly lucky to have a Trustee on board who sees the huge potential of what this charity offers and, most importantly, who genuinely values the creative talents of our participants and our desire to bring music to all.”
Christopher joins PMZ’s other Trustees and Special Advisers to support the organisation on its journey towards becoming an international centre of inclusive excellence for Community Music and Wellbeing that is open to all.
