My arts or creative practice (including details about my specific focus within that art form/practice and my strengths)

For the past 15 years I have worked in the creative industries. I have a postgraduate diploma in museum studies. I have worked as an art museum curator, educator and in collection management. I have volunteered for a museum and worked in public programmes at another museum and worked as an educator an art roadshow. Over the past six years I have worked mainly managing an art gallery and organising a number of exhibitions and art-related programmes.

My track record of experience and success - or the track record of experience and success of the creative or artist that I will partner with

I successfully managed and grew an art space for three years. At a museum, I instigated a number of programmes including the Museum's first outreach programme and holiday programme. In 2018 with an arts adviser we organised a pop-up museum supported by a museum and Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke supporting over 50 artists – musicians, visual artists and photographers to activate a vacant site and facilitate community activity and local art.

Describe the experience you have had working with children or young people, teaching or facilitating creative processes

I have organised, facilitated and run a number of school holiday programmes workshops and activities in my previous museum and gallery positions. I have taken many museum tours for children and school groups. In 2011 I worked on an art roadshow travelling Auckland schools for two months. l have four children and step-children (aged 3, 6, 15 and 16). I have written grant applications to support tamariki involvement in museums.

Why I want to be part of the Creatives in Schools programme and how my involvement will link to my creative practice

I have some great projects in mind that would benefit school students and the local community and strengthen relationships between the school and their museum and history. I would enjoy working with students sharing my skills and experience in creative programme development and exhibition curation and with teachers to achieve their educational goals creatively.
