She was the Production Manager for the South African State Theatre, previous Arts Manager of the Playhouse Company and former Producer for the Market Theatre Foundation for 10 years. As Arts Manager, she was responsible for designing artistic programmes and pre-selecting possible productions for inclusion in the annual production plan. In addition in both positions; all budgets, finances and contracts for the Artistic divisions were her responsibility. She was tasked with the overall strategic planning of the divisions as well as conceptualising, planning and implementing skills development plans and the advancement of training interventions for would-be theatre practitioners and their groups for either the AD and/or CEO’s input or approval.
The three previous positions highlighted above have seen her working in different administrative and technical roles in the arts creation process – giving her an appreciation and understanding of what it takes to successfully create art and run a publicly funded performing arts centre – experience few could speak of.
