CURATOR: FIONA WINNING
Fiona has worked in several Brisbane and Sydney theatre companies throughout her career and most recently was Director of Performance Space—an international contemporary arts hub in Sydney where she collaborated with artists and strategic partners to curate and produce events in theatres, galleries and public spaces. During that period, she co-curated and produced many national projects including the inaugural LiveWorks Festival, the Time_Place_Space Laboratories, TransLab Intercultural Residencies Project and Breathing Space, an Australia/UK exchange of interdisciplinary works. She is currently a member of the Theatre Board and Going Global Panel of the Australia Council.
PROJECT MANAGER: REBECCA MESTON
Rebecca has worked as an editor, arts journalist, teacher, administrator and independent theatre maker. She studied Performance Studies and English at the University of Sydney in the late ‘90s, while also devising work and performing at PACT Theatre. As a theatre maker she’s had her work performed at the Street Theatre and TiNA (This is Not Art), and was the co-creator of The Reunion, staged at the Sue Benner Theatre in Brisbane. In 2010 she toured her work Click Tease to the Adelaide Fringe, where it received rave reviews. Away from the stage Rebecca has worked as an editor for the University of Sydney, as a project coordinator at the Mental Health Association, and as a teacher at Canberra Youth Theatre and Backbone Youth Arts. Since 2001 she has also worked as an arts journalist, contributing to Lowdown, Muse, Artlook, dB, Scene, The Brag and ArtsHub.
This project has received financial assistance from the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, the Brisbane City Council and the Brisbane Powerhouse. Project partners are Metro Arts, Theatre Network Victoria and Brisbane Festival.
