ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:
Bec Cole is a writer, musician and cultural development practitioner with twin passions for culture and commerce. With experience in local government, non-profits and as an entrepreneur, Bec works with artists to define and communicate a compelling “why” as a starting point for designing a sustainable artistic practice. Bec currently works at Wyndham City in the Arts & Culture Team where she leads cultural development projects and programs that support artist development. Bec is also an aspiring economist and secret accountant.
Bo Svoronos proudly grew up in Cabramatta and comes from a community arts background. His father being one of the first Community arts officers for Liverpool City Council somewhere in the late 70’s, Bo recalls part of his childhood playing on the early grounds of what was to become Casula Powerhouse. Now Bo is Senior Creative Producer for FCAC, working across a diverse range of arts and cultural programs. He continues to be an independent producer having delivered the Global Poetics Tour with New York City poets Jive Poetic, Mahogany L. Browne and Ken Arkind, was executive producer for Ajak Kwai’s Of Cows, Women and War at La Mama, and delivered his first two independent festival programs the St Kilda Writers’ Festival in 2005 and 2006.
