Curatorial / Arts Consulting & Arts Project Management

With extensive experience in many aspects of art project curation, development and management and extensive professional networks, we can provide expert advice on pretty much any facet of your next arts or cultural event or project.   We can help select artists, artworks, identify opportunities, curate, plan or scope projects, commission specific work - be it temporary, permanent, site-specific - for exhibitions, festivals, collections, programs. We can research, benchmark, consult, plan, budget, survey, brainstorm, discuss, advocate, advise, select, plan, manage, deliver!

We can help select artists or artworks for new developments, office fit-outs, private homes, corporate and government collections.  We can work with developers, architects, interior designers, and as part of design teams helping to find the right artist or artwork for a project, purchasing existing work or commissioning artists to make new works as required.
