Médecins Sans Frontières

2010 – present
Consultant and Mentor

Bridey acts as a consultant to MSF’s live event collaborations. Her practical advice and production experience allows the humanitarian organisation to explore innovative ways to reach new audiences. At Glastonbury Festival she helped to create an earthquake-damaged hospital in Haiti. The live exhibition included a cholera treatment centre and a shipping container hospital, staffed by MSF frontline workers, to tell the story of Médecins Sans Frontières’ pioneering work. It also combined live music and workshops from Lyrix Organix to establish the first charity venue of its kind.
