Kim is a creative producer and director, curator and artist. With a career that began in advertising and communication, Kim has gone on to establish a highly successful event production company and generate unique public art programs. Her programs bring together artists, corporate and the public to raise awareness around the pressing issues of our time. Kim continues to consult as a creative director and producer in the events industry while cultivating her creative activations in the arts.
Across the event forum, Kim has specialised in the development of events from inception to completion, with extensive experience in guiding all elements of event set up inclusive of artistic direction, working with steering committees to produce content, programs, budgets and packages. Kim’s creativity and attention to detail result in the final production of highly personal and spectacular events. Kim’s client list spans across leading companies from creative organisations such as Film Victoria and the Australian Writers Guild to government agencies such as the Victorian Workcover Authority to corporate clients such as AMP Capital Investors, Australand, Parmalat and Mitsubishi.
Kim’s public art programs include the 5-year national program Art for a Cause and more recently the threeOclock program at Southgate Melbourne. Both programs connected art and social issues to the public through semi-private publically accessible space. They provided a platform for artists and not for profits to increase awareness around their work, connecting the ‘everyday person’ to new spaces and artists. The activation of these spaces engaged the public in critical social and environmental topics through art and events, generating new culturally diverse platforms in the unexpected spaces of our cities.
Kim graduated from RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) with a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) with High Distinction in 1994 and 2011 completed her Masters of Art (Art in Public Space) from RMIT with High Distinction. Kim is a committee member at The Centre for Art, Society and Transformation at RMIT University, established to investigate the future creative fabric of our cities.
If you want to catch Kim in a spare moment, you can usually find her in the mountains hiking or snowboarding, creating and installing random artworks and never more then a hands length away from her camera.
