Welcome! We’d love your feedback!!

The Arts Front Platform is in live beta testing in 2020. The development team are working on it right now. The full Arts Front system will be launched in November. Please take a look around and feel free to try things out. Features will continue to change and develop but any content you create (profiles, events, groups, actions, reports) can stay in the system.

Your content always belongs to you in Arts Front. You can delete your profile and content at any time.

If you have a question or you see something that’s broken or you have ideas for new features or improvements we would love to hear from you.

Almost 20 years later, my practice and my career have spanned two continents, a multiplicity of disciplines and contexts, which have generated an extensive experience of activating creative communities of artists and audiences. While based in Paris (2001 to 2011), I assumed leadership over the performing arts residency programs of Paris’ largest independent arts centre, Mains d’Oeuvres, a pioneer in the ‘new territories for the arts’ European arts ecology, whose mission is to inspire people to live creatively by exposing them to arts and artists in non-conventional ways. In 2011, I relocated to Australia as Artistic Director/CEO of Dancehouse. After 9 years of leadership, I am proud to have shaped Dancehouse into being such an outstanding a connecting gate between artists, new audiences and international contexts and markets. Additionally, I am founder and co-editor of the Dancehouse Diary a print and online publication connecting the body to the social and the political. I am (or have been) an active member of numerous transcontinental networks, more recently, Aerowaves, TransEuropHalles and Asia Network for Dance AND+. 

My strongest current interests are in artists’ mobility, situated context curatorship, cultural competency and alternative economic models for the arts. 

Little Lunch Online (LLOL) is a daily online meet up and creative exchange to support the Australian arts sector during the Corona Virus pandemic.
