The Board of Arts Upper Hunter would like to thank Carolyn O’Brien for stepping into the role of Acting Executive Director following the unexpected passing of Mark Reedman earlier in the year.
One of Carolyn’s advantages was that as a former Arts Upper Hunter Board Member and someone who had worked locally for many years, was that she was able to “hit the ground running”. Her appointment coincided with Arts Upper Hunter delivering several projects funded by the Create NSW Restart Program across the Upper Hunter and these needed to be organised within a tight time frame.
We would like to thank Carolyn for her endeavours in moving the organisation forward, in commencing our Strategic Planning initiatives and maintaining and building relationships with members of the Upper Hunter creative industries, local Councils, other Regional Arts Development Organisations and Create NSW. Carolyn’s last day with AUH was Friday 27 August. We wish her all the very best in her future endeavours.
