About Aurora Metro Arts and Media
We are a not-for-profit arts and education organisation dependent on grants and donations to carry out our projects. We collaborate with others to provide arts and media projects for the local community and beyond.
We were established in the 1990s and have delivered dozens of innovative arts and media projects involving films, theatre, talks, exhibitions, competitions, workshops, books and music in and around London until today. We work with creative arts practitioners, filmmakers, musicians and writers to create high quality arts projects.
We also train volunteers and engage members of the local community in our work. We are based in Twickenham in the borough of Richmond upon Thames which is famous for its Rugby, Rock'n'Roll, the landscape painter William Turner, the writers Virginia Woolf and Horace Walpole and the Royal Deer Park on top of Richmond Hill.
Our team is made up of:
Cheryl Robson, writer, editor and filmmaker
Didem Uzum, administrator
Ellen Cheshire, writer and film lecturer, marketing
Sarah Strupinski, film producer
Steve Robson, film producer and entrepreneur
Marina Tuffier, finance
Maja Florczak, Competition administrator
