Sustainable Sector: Cathy Hunt, Of One Mind / Positive Solutions

Thursday 21st October 2021

11am–12:30pm

We are delighted to present a new series of webinars, 'Sustainable Sector', focusing on different routes to a more sustainable model in arts organisations. With each webinar, we will also screen an interview with an NI cultural leader to talk about their experiences of the funding ecology, capacity, collaboration and co-creation, and what a sustainable organisational model—and moreover a sustainable cultural sector—would look like to them.

For the second of the series, we will be joined all the way from Australia by Cathy Hunt, a successful consultant, business woman and festival producer, with thirty years experience providing research and advice to governments, architects, arts and cultural organisations and artists internationally.

Cathy has highly developed skills in assisting organisations to analyse their operating environments, and develop strategic business plans; in working with diverse stakeholder groups, including across cultures, and negotiate agreed outcomes; in providing policy and program analysis and advice to all levels of government; in managing complex arts and cultural projects and events; and in bringing her deep understanding of the arts and cultural sector to bear on major initiatives in Australia and overseas.

Cathy is the Executive Director of cultural enterprise Of One Mind, producers of the WOW (Women of the World) Festivals in Australia in partnership with the global WOW Foundation, allowing women and girls, boys and men to imagine a gender equal world through a cultural program of both celebration and interrogation of contemporary life.

Cathy is also Co-Founder and Director of Positive Solutions, a leading consulting firm specialising in cultural strategy and in planning and organisational development for the non-profit sector.

As part this event, we will also be screening an interview with Andrea Montgomery, Artistic Director of Terra Nova Productions.

This is a free event and will last around 90 minutes.
