SPEAKER: Kim Biggs
Kim has over twenty five years experience gained in the tourism, museum and community cultural development industries and is extremely passionate about the contribution that the creative industries in all forms make to regional communities. Her involvement with regional creative communities spans back to her appointment as Regional Arts Development Officer in SW NSW in 1993. Since this time, she has worked across heritage and creative industries- always in regional areas and in variety of roles from project manager to mentor. Kim has operated her own creative facilitation consultancy from 2008 onwards, has facilitated multiple projects in partnership with local government and community and currently works with Golden Plains Shire Council in the role of Arts & Culture Advisor. Over recent years, Kim has presented a variety of creative interpretative projects at the annual NSW Museums of Arts & Applied Sciences Regional Stakeholders Day as a result of her ongoing connection to the NSW Museums Advisors Network. Kim’s background ensures that she brings a distinct style to her work, that community engagement is always present and that artists from a range of mediums are often used as interpretive and community engagement device.
