New Additions to the Revoluton Arts Board of Directors

We’re delighted to announce that, following a wide-reaching recruitment drive, we’ve appointed three new directors to the Board of Revoluton Arts.

Dr Mohammad Alramahi, Andrew Calvert and Asma Hussain have all lived in Luton and bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge.

Dr Mohammad Alramahi has been teaching law as a University lecturer for over 18 years. He has extensive school governance experience and has recently been appointed as a University Governor. He is truly passionate about giving back and making positive conurbation to his local community.

After growing up in Luton, Asma Hussain has gained significant experience in leadership and fundraising roles in arts and social change charities, including at tiata fahodzi and the Royal Opera House. She is currently studying for a PhD in Human Geography at the University of Sussex (funded by the Economic and Social Research Council),  focusing on how creatives in Luton live with difference through the works they produce.

Until his recent retirement, Andrew Calvert had spent over 10 years as the CEO of TOKKO Youth Space in Luton town centre. Outside of youth work, he has been actively involved in the town’s cultural scene for over 45 years and is currently the Rotary District Governor for Beds, Bucks and Herts.

Talking about his appointment, Andrew Calvert said “I have spent fifty years working with, and supporting, the arts community of Luton. I am now looking forward to becoming a board member of Revoluton, and working with this dynamic team to create and deliver innovative arts projects with the communities of Luton.”

Asma Hussain commented “I’ve been a long time admirer of Revoluton’s work since it was first set up back in 2015, and have especially valued its impact on young people locally. And so I’m excited to be joining the Board to support the next chapter of the organisation as it continues to connect communities through homegrown creativity and globetrotting international projects.”

CEO/Creative Director of Revoluton Arts, Lindsey Pugh, said “We’re delighted to welcome three new highly experienced and knowledgeable individuals to the Board. Their advice, guidance and local connections will be invaluable at an exciting time of growth for the organisation, supporting our bold ambition in producing new work that is both hyperlocal and world-embracing.”

Mohammad, Asma and Andrew join Matthew Jones, Hopeton Walker and Lindsey Pugh as company directors.
