Introducing Our New General Manager, and Farewell Victoria
The board of un Projects is excited to announce that Sarah Gory is un Projects' inaugural General Manager.
Sarah Gory is a reader and writer, creative facilitator and cultural producer. Working in the arts for the past decade, Sarah has held leadership positions with the Queensland Poetry Festival, Queensland Writers Centre, and National Young Writers Festival.
The board were particularly impressed with Sarah's belief that a rich and vibrant arts culture is integral to society.
"un Projects occupies a critical space in a thoughtful Australian arts dialogue, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to help facilitate and grow that conversation," Sarah told us. "As a passionate advocate of independent artists and innovative art, I'm looking forward to working with the Board and the amazing community of writers, artists, and creatives to continue to build the work of un Projects."
Sarah's creative non-fiction writing has been published in various literary journals, including the Lifted Brow and Stilts. She lives with her partner, two kids, an assortment of chooks, and moonlights as a food blogger.
The board would also like to take the opportunity to thank un Projects' outgoing Administrator Victoria Bennett, who has worked with us since June 2012.
Vic has been a crucial member of the un Projects team and she has changed the organisation in significant ways. As well as providing excellent support to enable the production of successive un Magazines, Victoria oversaw many new and special initiatives and also instituted important new systems for the organisation. We thank her for her incredible contribution and know that she will be missed by many in the un community.
Victoria has left to pursue a role at Open House Melbourne and we wish her the best of luck.
