Meet Alonso Lobato Jimenez, our new FRESH STREET#3 Co-ordinator!

Alonso Labato FRESH STREET#3I got my start in performing arts management working for Xtrax, one of the UK's leading outdoor arts development organisations. After four years managing outdoor arts projects with them, I decided it was time to return home to my native Spain and apply what I had learned in the UK. In recent years, my role within the performing arts sector has been as a festival coordinator and international relationship manager at festivals such as FITT (International Festival of Theatre of Tarragona, Catalonia), Festival Santiago OFF (Santiago, Chile) and Festival de Otoño (Madrid). At these large festivals, I managed various events and activities (particularly those for visiting programmers) and facilitated fluid communication among diverse teams. I also work with Catalan companies Escarlata Circus and Ada Vilaró on distribution, strategy and promotion.

It’s a true pleasure for me to join the team at Fresh Street in time for its third edition. I believe that outdoor art is important as a tool for communities to come together, build understanding and even to exchange ideas and culture among nations, which is something our world sorely needs at this moment. Cultivating international connections through the performing arts is a deep passion of mine and I think Fresh Street is the perfect opportunity for me to work on just that, by delivering a high-quality agenda of activities, discussions, workshops, networking and performances for arts professionals.
