Member Profile : Cara-Ann Simpson


I recently became the Curator for Hervey Bay Regional Gallery (Fraser Coast Regional Council), my role is to provide leadership and expertise to the strategic development and management of operations of the Regional Gallery to ensure the highest modern standard and practice is achieved. As a Curator I am interested in interactivity, the experiential and challenging audiences to engage with experimental ideas or mediums.

Previously I have held roles including the inaugural Director of Dame Elisabeth Murdoch's garden estate "Cruden Farm", Mornington Peninsula Regional Manager for the National Trust of Australia (Victoria), Curator for the City of Darebin including Bundoora Homestead Art Centre and the Art & History Collections, and Executive Co-Director & Co-Producer of Electrofringe Ltd.

I am a practising artist with an interest in sensory perception (particularly sound, air and scent), social participation, photography and interactivity. I have held solo exhibitions in Australia, New Zealand and the US, and spoken at a number of conferences on interactive installation. I also have a lived experience of disability, which in recent years has informed my arts practice more and more.
