I am an early career arts professional from Sydney, New South Wales. My practice represents a new wave of curatorship; I work across curatorship and artistic programs to further public engagement with art, artists and ideas through unique and inclusive audience experiences.
I graduated in 2011 from UniSA with a Bachelor of Visual Arts, first-class Honours and have since programmed and produced events for major cultural institutions; worked in production and management for international festivals; facilitated educational workshops for families and at-risk youth; co-directed FELTspace Gallery; and produced independent contemporary music festivals.
I am currently embarking on my final year of my Masters of Curating and Cultural Leadership at UNSW. Prior to this, I was employed as the Art Gallery of South Australia’s inaugural Teen Programs Officer, programming and producing Neo, the Gallery’s free bi-monthly festival-style event just for 13 to 17 years olds, which regularly attracts an audience of 600+ teens. Here, I also worked closely with the Gallery’s Director, Nick Mitzevich and Assistant Director, Creative Programs, Lisa Slade to program and produce festival and exhibition openings; talks, tours, lectures and symposia; art fairs and auctions; school holiday and GP workshops; performance; live music; and other ‘up-late’ events.
I have nearly 10 years of experience working in exhibition and event production and management for organisations including Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute; WOMADelaide; Adelaide Festival; and as Team Leader of the Australian Pavilion at Venice Biennale in 2013, as well as producing independent contemporary music festivals Half Strange (2016/17/18) and BungSound (2017). I have received professional grants from the Adelaide City Council, ArtsSA, Australia Council, Carclew, Helpmann Academy, and NAVA.
