Jo has been fortunate to work on the Gold Coast since 2014 and alongside great creative industry professionals and key community members who are also passionate about the arts and culture transformation throughout the City.Having been raised in Brisbane, frequent trips to the Gold Coast and surrounding hinterland areas was part of family life and becoming independent with my own wheels, there were many more trips down the highway to go to the beach whenever I could. Between 2014 and 2019, Jo was fortunate enough to deliver the annual South Stradbroke Island Indigenous Artist Camp and have unique ‘on country’ experiences alongside all of the artists involved over the years. If I am able to get back over to South Stradbroke more regularly I would, however I am more than happy to connect with other special places on the coast like Tallebudgera, Currumbin or Jellurgal (Burleigh headland) for a swim or walk throughout the natural areas. She has successfully worked across government for 25 years, including a photography cadetship completed in 1999 at the State Library of Queensland, is passionate about continuing to document people and places especially through the arts. Later evolving into the City of Gold Coast, Arts and Culture unit and more recently as the First Nation Curator at Placemakers*. I love working in the creative arts industry and especially working in a city with a beach lifestyle.
