Jamie is an artist, facilitator and dramaturg. She creates and curates participatory experiences, facilitating meditations on culture, place, and time, through autobiographical stories, conversation and food. Jamie also collaborates as facilitator, dramaturg, and co-creator; curiously exploring place and new vantage points with Dan Koop, she creates and curates site-responsive participatory performances. Committed to diversifying practice, Jamie seeks alternative models of working, and a re-imagining of leadership, governance, and structures. She has experience in Audience Development, and consults on branding, marketing, and communications across arts organisations and small businesses. She is currently also Communications 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.

  1. I love this video Saltwater, the world need more people connecting with food, stories and conversation. The world would be a better place if we had a laksa every day and let the conversation and thoughts flow as we gather the spicy coconut broth and hokkien noodles.
