Welcome, I’m Mahalla, an arts business development consultant. I specialise in fundraising, business planning, strategy and diversity and inclusion in the arts. I am physically disabled and neurodiverse, and have both personal and professional experience in disability arts. For the past three years I have been Development Manager at NPO Open Up Music. I am also queer, and the daughter of an immigrant Mother and a working class Father. I started my career over 10 years ago at Battersea Arts Centre in an Apprenticeship for young people on benefits without a degree. Since then I have been working in arts development and on my own artistic practice. Reach out, I would love to meet you.
