The Creative Team
EMMA CROUCH & ROSIE MURDOCH
Emma and Rosie met back in 2007 whilst both working for a youth charity in Tower Hamlets. Since then they have worked together on a varied array of projects around London, working with artists and the general public on projects that have reached over 100,000 people.
Emma CROUCh - i say RAAR
i say RAAR is the creative output of Emma Crouch. A documentary filmmaker, Emma is a storyteller who works mainly in the areas of arts, education and community/global issues. With a degree in Anthropology, Emma has a natural curiosity to explore the world around her, reinterpreting people's passions or specialist knowledge into a narrative that is accessible to a wider audience. She also works collaboratively with artist to help create work/commissions.
Based in East London, but working across the UK and globally, Emma is equally at home on a building site in Barking, wading through a river in South London, hanging off the back of a 4-by-4 in Malawi, or in an artist studio in Sheffield.

Rosie Murdoch is an art curator and a producer of stories through writing, film and podcasts.
Having studied english literature at university in Belfast, Rosie has worked as an accountant technician, a legal secretary in her mum's office, a youth programmer for Summer Uni and a gallery director at Bow Arts collecting experiences and friends along the way.
Rosie has just parked-up on the day job to go freelance and invest more time in Métier. She has also launched the Madge Gill Drawing Project, to promote Britain's foremost "outsider" artist Madge Gill in her home borough, Newham. Rosie is delivering projects for University College London and LBN, and collects her three children from school at 3pm on weekdays. They usually have an ice-cream on Friday.
Métier is an intensely personal and important project to both Emma & Rosie allowing these close friends to collaborate on a professional platform to support women in a way they choose.
