Amy Plant will be attending ECOSOC with Global Voices in New York. She has a background in not-for-profit project management, having worked for eight years in Western Australia with FORM. FORM is a non-profit cultural organisation working with interdisciplinary creative teams to deliver creative arts projects. After finishing up at FORM, Amy moved to Mackay in North Queensland to study a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Business at Central Queensland University.
Amy is interested in non-profit arts sector policy after the recent controversy with Creative Arts funding. She is particular interested in how policy guides the development of particular creative programs.
As part of the Global Voices Research Fellowship Amy will evaluate strategies to preserve and showcase Indigenous intangible cultural heritage materials.
