Rosena Stevens - General Manager


As the General Manager, I work closely with the Spaces and Finance teams, ensuring the operations are ticking along behind the scenes.

I am also the HR Lead, and Company Secretary for the Board of Trustees – so basically I get to look after everyone! Prior to working at East Street Arts, I worked at the University of Leeds, most recently at the Cultural Institute.

Outdoor hobbies include running local choir Leeds Vocal Movement, teaching salsa, watching opera and laughing at podcasts in public. Indoor hobbies include playing video games, inhaling films and TV series, cross-stitching and forcing my hair into submission.
