Hillary has worked for over twenty-five years in the Australian arts and cultural sector. She has a number of Post Graduate qualifications including a Masters in Arts Management. Hillary has worked across four different states in Australia in many and varied roles and has toured extensively both nationally and internationally. She has worked for small not for profit organisations, larger companies, festivals and with independent artists producing their own work. 

In her current role as Executive Director/Co CEO of Dancenorth her focus is on the genuine and conscious commitment to celebrating the unique and authentic voice of this extraordinary company located in North Queensland. 

It is her desire to forge deep and lasting relationships with the First Nations Artists in the region and to continue to find ways to offer opportunities to the many independent artists around the country. It is her belief, that now, more than ever we have a responsibility to consider carefully what our responsibility is as art makers and to consciously cultivate a deeper, richer and more diverse representation in our arts and cultural life.
