Independent Arts Worker with a focus on connection, contemporary art and community practices

As both a Visual Artist and Arts Worker, I deeply value practices in care and vulnerability, using art and facilitation as vehicles for connection. My work aims to support others to connect, share, reflect and feel emboldened, whether with practical tools to get a project off the ground, or a space to be held and share vulnerabilities in order to move forward. I try to find ways to demystify the art world and how it can sometimes make us feel isolated, hoping to create a more accessible space for artists and audiences to make and participate in art.

 

Currently I am a co-facilitator of Regional Arts Australia’s Regional Scribes program for young writers, proud Board Member of GUTS Dance Central, graphic designer for organisations, businesses and independent artists, and consultant on grants and project development. ​​


I was the Director of Watch This Space ARI from 2016-2020 and have supported a colourful range of practices, from heavy metal music festivals to political playwrights to First Nations Skateboard social enterprises. I was accepted into the 2020/2021 Future Leaders Program by the Australia Council for the Arts and received the Arts NT Creative Fellowship in 2021. I developed and ran a series of workshops, Can I get a hand, pls?, for independent artists and non-artists on Grants, Finances and Marketing, and have facilitated sessions for organisations including NAVA, Next Wave and Watch This Space. My professional development includes Governance, Arts Access, Fundraising, Digital Marketing and I have Mental Health First Aid training.
