Arts Projects

Our specialty is participatory,

socially-engaged contemporary art experiences for audiences of all ages. 

If you are a festival or museum looking for immersive, hands-on experiences, we deliver projects that bring art to life for your audience. Our works are multi-sensory, uplifting and thought-provoking!

We can work to a specific brief or present you with fresh ideas that meet your needs.

Highlights include:

Jurassic Plastic for Sydney Festival,

Tanabata for the Powerhouse Museum & WOW Festival, and Art Ninjas for Lendlease.

All these projects are available for tour in Australia and internationally.

Kathryn has a way of valuing relationships and building enduring networks that transcend the usual cultural difficulties that plague many cross-cultural collaborations.

She shows her colleagues great kindness and generosity, and at times a clarity and rigour that gives new insights into our own cultural perspectives. I'm always impressed by her eye for detail, cultural curiosity and dedicated service to the task.

Kathryn never rests on past success, instead building ambitious, brave new transactions between audiences and artists. Kathryn's courage, powers of persuasion and sense of adventure mark her as an incredible force in cross-cultural and community-engaged artistic endeavours.

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.

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.
