Cultural Producers 2023

Luke Draper is a lighting designer by profession, but, because of the pandemic, his hobby became a new vocation, that of game and software developer. His background and academic qualifications are in theatre and the performing and visual arts. He specialises in making interactive games focused on augmented reality, musical themes and mobile device functionality.

Luke develops what he wants to see in the world – and figures out the business of it all as he goes along. He has a passion for finding ways to combine art and technology. His skill set falls within the EdTech space, which has helped him survive the pandemic in spite of his decimating his regular income that came from lighting live events. He has received funding from Newable and the SAB Foundation.
