Just Purple Presents aims to enrich the lives of all communities through art and culture by producing events, offering advice to small groups and marketing local BAME arts events. Just Purple Presents was founded by Johanne Hudson-Lett, who has worked in the arts for over 20 years for a range of organisations, including Local BBC Radio, Bedford Creative Arts and Music in Detention.
Johanne is currently a part-time freelancer for the UK Centre for Carnival Arts in the role of Marketing Manager & Learning & Participation Officer. Music has always played a major part in Johanne’s life and running a local children’s community choir has spurred her on to create JPP to offer professional opportunities to those who may be from disadvantaged backgrounds. As the Musical Director for Fusion Youth Choir and Band, Johanne is responsible for the repertoire covered and ensures that the young people sing and play music of all genres, from Stevie Wonder to Stephen Sondheim.
Johanne comes with over 20 years of work experience in the arts and media industry holding roles at the BBC in local radio as a presenter, Hear Me Out, running singing workshops in detention centres, community engagement officer for the UK Centre for Carnival Arts and currently working as the Senior Producer for Revoluton Arts. To create positive change and inspire communities, working together is a necessity. Let's do this!
