CULTURAL POLICY AND MANAGEMENT
During my MA studies and since graduating, I worked in the Wits School of Arts as a contract lecturer in arts management at 3rd and 4th year and Honours level. In this capacity, I was also responsible for curriculum development, course administration, and supervising students’ practical traineeship work. My studies and MA qualification in Arts and Culture Management further developed my knowledge of the content in my teaching areas, and opened up many other exciting opportunities such as developing a cultural leadership course, co-presenting at a Depth Leadership conference, sharing my research and research process with subsequent MA students, and new work opportunities. I currently work at Business and Arts South Africa as the M&E and Research Officer, where I am able to implement my research skills and continue to share and develop knowledge to advocate for and develop the arts and culture sector. In addition, I am a co-founder of non-profit performing arts organisation, Flying House, which officially launched in January 2016, seeking to increase sustainability of artists in South Africa through collaboration and support.
