advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
In my current role as Arts Administrator for the Fourth Wall Theatre in Sydney, I am responsible
for the organisation and promotion of new theatre productions. This has included the seeking of
sponsorship and funding from government and non-government organisations, negotiating
contracts with actors and other performers, helping to develop the theatre’s creative vision and
marketing plan, and management of the production budget. I am also responsible for all media and
PR related to the theatre. My tenure has seen an increase in media presence, and a concomitant
20% increase in ticket sales.
My previous arts administration experience in festivals and theatre has left me with exceptional
organisational, logistical and management skills, and a good working knowledge of the financial
and legal obligations of festival managers. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Arts and a
Graduate Certificate in Arts Management.
Throughout my career in the arts, I have demonstrated a commitment to contributing to the
cultural and artistic landscape in Australia. My experience in festival administration has left me
with a solid understanding of arts management in community settings, and the challenges and
rewards of arts fundraising and sponsorship.
You will find me to be a cooperative, organised and resourceful person, with a quiet determination
and a capacity to think outside the square. A strong team player, I’m also at home working to tight
