River is a creative with a love for design, film and storytelling. River recently joined the Production Support Team as Production Support Coordinator on a part time basis after helping out casually as a Props and Staging Assistant / Standby Props since mid 2018. River is a NIDA graduate and has worked in Art departments as a prop maker, set builder, set dresser, props buyer and standby props on numerous films, TV and theatre productions. She also has many years experience in events and live theatre including as a lighting and audio technician and a stage and production manager.
An avid user of rough trade, River enjoys making props and costumes from found and recycled objects in order to reduce waste. Her love for coordinating and organising events and sets is built upon twenty years-experience working internationally in policy, planning and project management roles for both government and community sector.
Now formally retired from Project Management River looks to invest time and energy into creative projects based on the values of collaboration, community building, sustainability, skill sharing and kindness. Always ready to help, you can find River in the Props Store or in the Workshop.
