I’m a Darwin based storyteller - written, visual and verbal. Currently I wear many hats, including; journalist at the Top End’s local entertainment rag Off The Leash; story producer for SPUN Stories - a quartly live storytelling event and podcast; and associate producer at the Darwin Fringe Festival.
When I’m not busy writing I’m also a visual artist with a printmaking and soft sculptural practice, with a background in fashion design.
I’m keen to be part of Arts Front U30 to meet other young passionate artists and arts workers outside of Darwin and contribute to discussions about the future of arts in Australia.
I feel I’m just starting to find my feet in the arts sector and attending Arts Front U30 will give me a clearer understanding of the conversation taking place at a national level, and in other regional centres.
I’m also passionate about ensuring that regional voices are heard at national meetings. The Northern Territory is a unique places which breeds unique ideas, but also often feels isolated from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. It would be a fantastic opportunity to share more about what goes on in this weird, wonderful and creative place I call home, and bring back ideas and information from the wider community.
