joss areté


A born-and-bred New Yorker with a decade of experience in LA, Joss Areté relocated to the UK in 2019, where they have been named a Global Talent Promising Leader by the government.


From devising immersive nightlife events to directing and producing festival-premiering feature film, transmedia music, and award-winning digital experiences, including for Jeanette Winterson, CBE, Joss holds a unique capacity to unite the UK and US in production.


Their work has been supported by the Arts Council of England, HOME (Manchester), FACT (Liverpool), Spirit Studios, and Homobloc (Warehouse Project), and they have guest lectured internationally in digital design and transmedia storytelling. 


Joss has been a producer, development exec, and idea doula across televisionagenciesimmersive, and literature, assisted global media expert Henry Jenkins, and produced large-scale creative conferences. They are currently Creative Producer for an AI speculative fiction installation by Scottish XR theatre lab Produced Moon, recipients of Watershed/Pervasive Media's 'More than AI' grant. Their work is supported by their masters in Creative Writing from the University of Manchester (UK), and a bachelor’s degree in Theatre from Northwestern University (Chicago, USA).

Recently, they've launched Studio Areté, an experiential studio which centres community by fusing grounded data-led insights with wild creative exploration and emerging technology magic.
