There are far too few experienced creative producers working in the area of Australia’s engagement with Asia, who are able to pursue the highly sophisticated and culturally sensitive negotiations that are needed to develop and implement creative project partnerships.
ArtsPeople’s Kathryn Hunyor has enormous capacity and expertise in these areas which, when combined with her exceptional creative vision, professional integrity and courage to take on complex and challenging endeavours, will ensure that she will continue to play a very important leadership role in the arts and cultural sector.
Producer ‘Made in 17 Hours’ Toshiba Campaign, Clemenger BBDO, Sydney
ArtsPeople are simply brilliant! I thanked my lucky stars every day for having them on board. They somehow managed to make the impossible possible and did it with absolute professionalism.
They were an incredible source of knowledge and information to someone who knew nothing about the art world or dealing with artists. Not only did they find a renowned artist perfect for the job, they also put us in touch with the best suppliers in Sydney. They visualised and executed an entire exhibition within a couple of months. The campaign would never have been as successful as it was without them. They were an absolute joy to work with.
Former Manager, Public Programs
Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences
ArtsPeople have a highly creative, professional and collaborative approach, driven by a profound understanding of audience engagement.
Their combined curatorial, design and public programming backgrounds uniquely position them to provide large audiences with rich and creative participatory experiences that are also personally meaningful and visually strong.
Much of Tanabata: Star Village’s success was due to their ability to understand and inform the project brief, creatively respond to each site and it’s operational challenges, and ensure the project met both the needs of the museum and our diverse audiences.
