Artistic Director, Act of Translation
Catherine Simmonds is one of Australia’s leading community cultural directors. Her focus is the space between the ‘lived experiences’ of communities and the language of art. For more than two and half decades she has provided marginalised people with a creative space to ‘discover the need to speak and to speak the unspoken’. The community, become the actors, the devisors, the consultants, the protagonists of their own and each other’s stories.
