Independent Producer (multi-artform)

Frances has over 24 years arts administration experience working with the Australia Council, Arts Law Centre of Australia, the Performance Space, Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP), National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA), Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Fifth Australian Sculpture Triennial, Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery, City of Hobart, Salamanca Arts Centre and the Cygnet Folk Festival. Her creative practice spans visual arts, craft, music, performance, theatrical production and writing.

Areas of specialty include but are definitely not limited to: creative collaborations; grant sourcing and writing; contracts; budgeting. 

A Tasmanian Requiem is her first major production, to be performed at the Theatre Royal in April 2018. This is an creative collaboration with Helen Thomson (composer), Greg Lehman and Jim Everett (writers), Julie Gough (artist) and Michael Gissing (film production). We're creating a uniquely Tasmanian audio and visual work using the format of a Requiem Mass - an oratorio for voice and brass - to commemorate the irretrievable loss of innocence and understanding of place, which is quietly mourned on a daily basis by the descendants of those who fought the Black War, and all of us who live with its legacies.
