Biography

I'm the founding CEO of Contemporary Arts Precincts Ltd. CAP is a not for profit social enterprise redeveloping the former Collingwood TAFE site in inner Melbourne into a new cultural precinct. We are also developing a unique, innovative social enterprise model that can provide sustainable, affordable arts spaces both at Collingwood and elsewhere in Australia.

 

Prior to my role at CAP I was the founder of Renew Newcastle and Renew Australia, a columnist for The Age, the author of "Creating Cities" and the writer and presenter of the ABC TV series Bespoke and Not Quite Art.

 

My Social Change fellowship has allowed me to visit and explore models from around the world and to build deep relationships with the Westpac group, including the Bank of Melbourne who have become an invaluable founding commercial partner to CAP.
