Rhona Matheson - Chief Executive

Rhona has been working in children’s theatre/arts since 2002 when she joined Wee Stories. She began working with Starcatchers on the pilot project in 2006 and since then has been on an amazing journey with dozens of babies, toddlers, parents, carers, educators, artists and project partners.

Heather Armstrong - Creative Skills Programme Manager

Heather joined Starcatchers in 2013 after eight years working with children and young people in Glasgow in some of the most deprived communities in Europe. She believes passionately in the power the arts have to transform lives and tackle inequalities, and working with our youngest members of society seems the best place to start.

Amy Briggs - Marketing & Development Co-ordinator

Londoner Amy moved to Edinburgh to work for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society and never looked back! She worked in London for cross-cultural theatre company Tara Arts prior to that and also works as a freelance Graphic Designer.

Bethany Whiteside - Creative Skills Programme Co-ordinator

Following six years’ professional experience in the Scottish arts sector, and soon-to-be-completed PhD study in dance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (funded by the ESRC), I am passionate about merging theory and practice and am delighted to be inspiring creativity in the very youngest generation!

Maria Giergiel - Trainee Associate Artist

Maria is a performance maker and facilitator, graduating this summer with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Performance Practice from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. She has itchy everything, doesn’t like sitting still. Her work stems from her own interests and fascinations and she is motivated by a need to find honest and playful ways to connect with other people.

Jo King - General Manager (Commencing August)

Jo has been working in the arts for 20 years and has a wide range of experience across venues, producing companies, agencies and support organisations. At the heart of all she does is the aim to spread enthusiasm and affection for the arts through wonderful experiences and powerful productions.
