Margie Gleeson & Christine Bottrell – BNG Learning
Local mavens Christine Bottrell and Margie Gleeson are the founders of Breaking New Ground. They identify opportunities, activate ethical partnerships and create awesome projects.
Each began her career teaching in the creative arts and between them have decades of education experience with very young people through to adults; having taught at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels in diverse environments. After numerous and long discussions over the years they decided early in 2016 to physically commit to a project that has the arts, sustainable living and a love of learning at the centre. They noticed a gap in the learning environment which includes not only schools and educators but also community collaborations and challenges.
Breaking New Ground offers a breadth of experience, not just in the arts and education, but in community engagement, project management and leadership.
