I am the grumpy cat of arts marketing 😾
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’s First Peoples have shared knowledge and culture through networks. In recognition that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are Australia’s 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 – their country takes in most of where Brisbane is situated now and parts of Logan, Moreton Bay and the Redlands – and that sovereignty was never ceded. I pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging – and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their communities and their cultures throughout Australia.
