Jamie is an artist, facilitator and dramaturg. She creates and curates site-responsive participatory experiences, facilitating meditations on culture, place, and time, often through autobiographical stories, conversation and food, and with people who don’t always consider themselves artists.
Jamie also has a long-term creative partnership – curiously exploring place and new vantage points with Dan Koop as Jamie, Dan & Co.
You may also find her teaching, or consulting on audience development and communications across arts organisations and small business. She is currently the Program Manager at Theatre Network Australia, on the Board of Multicultural Arts Victoria, and was in the 2018 cohort of Australia Council for the Arts’ Future Leaders program.
