The end of 2013 was time for taking a hiatus from the familiar to hone in on an indefinite direction for my work. Finding over time my new environment of Melbourne shares the similar quality and quantity of layers that I love of Dublin; that of the underground art scenes, music, circus, culture, warehouse/artist collectives, start up initiatives and especially the networks of creative women.
I have been engaging with incredible people, over a year of learning, building and creating in different projects. Honing an indefinite direction for my work has me involved as a Lead Producer for Found, a start-up Festival and online network that epitomises my personal ideologies- fundamentally that of creating a network to connect, support and motivate women working in the arts.
With some of the most creative, talented and driven women in Melbourne, we will be producing FOUND festival at Testing Grounds, Melbourne CBD on the 21st of November 2015. We are currently running a crowd funding campaign that Creative Partnerships Australia will give $ for $ doubling donations.
Follow the links below to keep up to date with the project and if you share the knowing of how essential this work is please do support and join the FOUND Facebook page for daily doses of all the art.
FOUND is an immersive, multidisciplinary arts and culture event that showcases the work of creative women in a site-specific live-arts setting. On November 21st, the Found Festival and Found Mentorship High Tea will take place.
