SPEAKER: Nancy Sposato
Nancy Sposato’s creative practice draws from various art forms. In 2002 she completed a BA in Creative Arts (Victorian College of the Arts/Melbourne University). Her career has focused on performance with extensive international experience with Australian company Strange Fruit and when home from tour she collaborated on countless independent contemporary theatre projects. She is one of the founders of The Ball Room Projects, presenting cutting edge participatory theatre work for children and families on main stages across Australia.
Sposato’s passion for creative expression led her to establish the Nambucca Heads Arts Studio, facilitating weekly multi-media arts sessions for adults and youth. Coming from Melbourne, Sposato identified a need in the Valley for experimental arts practice. A safe space where the creative process is highly valued as a way to support well-being. Sposato’s broad community facilitation skills extend beyond arts contexts; she is currently engaged by The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) as a local facilitator to support over 100 not-for-profit organistation’s and community groups based in the Nambucca Valley NSW.
