NEWS from Artrix - Goodluck to Andy Woods

The founder Director of Artrix, Andy Woods, has announced that he will step down from his post at the end of August 2014 after almost 10 years. Andy has played a distinguished leadership role in opening and establishing Artrix as a successful jewel in the crown of the cultural life of North Worcestershire.  Andy is moving on to take up a freelance career programming and managing venues and festivals across Gloucestershire and the West Midlands.

Chair of the Board of Artrix, Dorothy Wilson, has paid tribute to the contribution Andy has made to Bromsgrove and the wider region: “Since its opening over 9 years ago Artrix has changed the landscape of artistic provision in Bromsgrove and the surrounding areas.  It is an award-winning arts centre which serves all sections of the community with an eclectic programme of theatre, dance, cinema, live music, comedy and arts skills workshops as well as a highly valued outreach and learning programme. A partnership between Bromsgrove District Council, NEW College and the community of Bromsgrove District, Artrix continues to thrive as one of the Midlands busiest and most diverse arts venues. 

Everyone associated with Artrix has much to appreciate in the leadership Andy has provided in establishing the centre and in making it a venue of choice for many nationally touring artists and companies as well as a place where the arts of the communities of the District continue to flourish. We wish Andy all the very best for an equally exciting and rewarding freelance career.’
