After training as an Animateur at the VCA Drama School decades ago, I began my arts career job-sharing the leadership of Community Arts Network Victoria in 1984. Now, after many experiences of leadership and senior management roles in the arts and local government, plus years consulting to NFP organisations, I'm privileged to co-lead CAN - Community Arts Network - with Monica Kane. In the last 15 years CAN's work has focused on developing community arts programs with Noongar communities in the south west of Western Australia. More recently, CAN has expanded its work with culturally diverse communities across WA. All of CAN's work honours the principle of First Peoples First and is focussed on building inclusion and understanding between people.
