I have been part of the Vale activities for 5 years and have done a variety of different roles from public arts projects to event management and performance. I am grateful to Global Grooves who manage the space for the opportunities provided; both to me and my daughter who works full time there. From humble beginnings in part of an old mill building to taking on additional studio space and creating the areas newest venue and meeting place for like minded creatives. So much has changed in that time.

Carnival involves multiple disciplines from making the costumes and puppets, teaching drumming and dancing to managing full scale street performance and creating static installations at public events. It's a joy to be able to work alongside a diverse group of talented people and I now look forward to what we create next. WATCH THIS SPACE!!!!

About Matt Catt

I'm best known for my 'Global' sound that mashes up music from all over the world, and I have done countless gigs and live-streams. Playing party classics and festival flavours, blending beats from downtempo through dance to future grooves. All great songs are fair game as I find fitting versions that celebrate their universal appeal.

I also work behind the scenes on events production and in the studio to create and edit content. I have often been the go-to-geek for many who needed help completing a project doing anything from artwork to zoom meetings. I provide practical support and creative problem solving as I develop my portfolio for social action projects & events both online and in the global community. I can do all this and more...

Event Management - Making Media - Digital Design & Delivery

Life after Lockdown - How you can help

It's been quite a time for us all, I am grateful to those around me who helped get me through the pandemic and the support shared within our community. As we look forward to venues re-opening; we also have to open to the reality that events will be very different now and bio-security controls affecting everything through the insurance and licensing process. For artists this will effect fees, value and of course compliancy. It's quite the predicament.

I am already prepared as much as possible whilst increasing my natural resilience to the changes, I'm grateful for my time learning to work more sustainably and have avoided unmanageable overheads and crippling debt. That said my work still costs me to create and connect so I do have to consider my income streams.

I have options to subscribe on my twitch channel and collect contributions through my paypal page.

You can also book me to play in person, via my twitch page or your own online streaming service.
