Founder / President (2017)
~RedWest Creatives Co-op
In 2017 I was awarded a 'Community Strengthening Grant' from Wyndham City Council to start an Artist Co-op. Along with a group of other Wyndham-based creatives we formed ‘RedWest’, a co-operative that would galvantize local creatives together to help develop and strengthen Wyndham’s creative community and help provide those artists with a voice and a sense of advocacy.
I was able to form the group and get it started in it’s initial year but due to my getting hired at Wyndham City Council, and later being offered a permanent role; it was deemed that I needed to resign my role as president in 2018. Later I also decided to end my membership to ensure that the organisation would continue to develop independent of my or council’s influence.
