Meet Katrin Amberntsson, Senior Producer at Re:Orient in Sweden, a leading organizer of international cultural and music events in Sweden. Prior to joining Re:Orient, she was Events Manager at Södra Teatern, one of Sweden´s foremost international venues for music. Katrin also has professional experience in public relations and tourism, having worked as a consultant and press coordinator at MTV and as a travel agent for the Cairo areas. Her favorite part about working in the arts field is that her job continuously feeds her with numerous opportunities to meet people and learn new things.
Katrin expressed that she was very satisfied with her first ISPA Congress experience which introduced her to “an amazing network of professionals that allows growth, in both career and as a person.”
When asked about the kind of contribution she hopes to make to the international field of performing arts, Katrin answered:
“My professional life has been divided between the cultural and the commercial sector. I believe strongly that mutual benefits can be derived from different branches cooperating. I also see great possibilities with inter-cultural communication. Over the years, I have worked a great deal with the Middle East and I hope to contribute a Scandinavian and Middle-Eastern perspective on my job in an international environment.”
