I am a creative producer and project manager with extensive experience in arts and festival management. Currently working at Theatre Network Australia (an industry development organisation for the performing arts), I have gained a national insight into the sector's concerns and challenges. TNA's work prioritises independent artists and small to medium companies, aims to strengthen artists and arts organisations, influence cultural policy, facilitate critical debate and networking, and advocate for a robust, interconnected and innovative sector. Prior to this role I was the General Manager for Lorne’s 2016 Festival of Performing Arts (FOPA), and from 2010- 2017 was the Executive Producer at KAGE where I grew the company from operating on a project basis, to become a key organisation in Australian dance. I was also a participant in the Australia Council for the Arts’ Emerging Leaders Development Program in 2015.

An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.
The Fair Play symposium will platform the knowledges, leading practices and lived experiences of First Nations, Disability, and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse creative practitioners.
