As some of you know our Executive Director Alyce Fisher is expecting her first child and will be taking parental leave at the end of the week!
We are excited to announce and introduce Susan Reid who will be undertaking the ED role while Alyce is on leave.
Since getting her first taste of the world of professional theatre as the office manager at what was then MRPG (now Hothouse Theatre) in the 1990s, Susan has worked across the arts in Australia and overseas. In that first job at MRPG, she was so inspired by the people she worked with, she decided “I want to do what you do”, and the world changed for her.
After graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts, Susan worked primarily as a costumier in theatre, TV and film, always alongside generous, talented and hardworking creatives.
Susan and her family moved back to the Border region in 2007 and she worked with local government and community organisations in Arts and Cultural Development and community engagement. In recent years, she has been involved in every aspect of commissioning and delivery of placemaking and public art projects for local government organisations, including engaging artists, securing funding and donning the high vis and steel cap boots for installations.
Susan thrives on making the most of human energy, finding adventures every day and being a part of collaborations that bring joy and cultural richness to the world. She is super excited to be at Murray Arts.
Murray Arts contributes directly to the arts and cultural lifeblood of the NE VIC/ Border region by working directly with individuals, communities and local government to assist them in developing the arts and cultural life of their communities.
