As the Founder and Artistic Director of Antidote—a platform at the intersection of art and social change—Grace strives to bring together the best creative minds in conversation through artist features and curated programs. Each story is brought to life through a series of exhibition, both in pop-up spaces and major visual art institutions alike. With an emphasis on featuring emerging to established contemporary artists, Antidote provides an alternative frame of reference for significant world issues. Grace has curated exhibitions at numerous ARI’s, commercial galleries and institutions, across New South Wales and Victoria.
As the 2016 – 2017 Leader of the Amnesty NSW ARTillery group, Grace uses art as a platform to inspire action on human rights issues. She is the Executive Producer of Arts & Culture at FBi Radio and is the most recent recipient of the 2018 NSW/ACT Young Achiever of the Year Award for Art+Fashion.
In theatre, Grace works as a drama tutor, interdisciplinary artist and dramaturge, with particular interest in where performance meets social practice and community engagement, and the CACD/Applied Theatre field. She works often with young people and also with participants who may have complex trauma and mental health support needs at ATYP & Milk Crate Theatre. In music, she works as a singing teacher, vocal coach and as a performer specialising in jazz, contemporary and choral performance.
Grace studied at the Interlochen Centre for the Arts in Michigan and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA). She has completed two degrees (BA and BMus) at UNSW and is currently undertaking a Masters of Art Curating at the University of Sydney.
Grace resides in Sydney and speaks to dogs as if they understand her.
