Member Profile : Elliott Bledsoe

I am the grumpy cat of arts marketing ūüėĺ

I am the Director of Agentry, a communications consultancy focused on small-to-medium arts organisations. I currently work with Feral Arts on Arts Front and with Scenic Rim Regional Council on Arts Ablaze. I have worked with Blakdance, the National Library of Australia, Brisbane City Council, The Tivoli, Backbone, Critical Path, Creative Recovery Network and others.

I also work part-time for the Australian Digital Alliance and the Australian Libraries Copyright Committee. I have held marketing and content positions with the Queensland Writers Centre, ABC RN, the Australia Council for the Arts, Regional Arts Australia, Regional Arts Victoria and others.

As a digital communications specialist I acknowledge the thousands of years that¬†Australia‚Äôs First Peoples have shared knowledge and culture through networks.¬†In recognition that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are Australia‚Äôs First Peoples and Traditional Custodians of the land I acknowledge the¬†Turrbal People and the Yugara-Yugarapul People¬†as Custodians of the land on which I¬†live and work ‚Äď their country takes in most of where Brisbane is situated now and parts of Logan, Moreton Bay and the Redlands ‚Äď and that¬†sovereignty was never ceded. I pay respect to their Elders ‚Äď past, present and emerging ‚Äď and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their communities and their cultures throughout Australia.
