Australian arts strategist to visit

ANNA Grega, a Sydney-based arts strategist with Slovak roots who is currently touring central and eastern Europe and lecturing on arts marketing, will spend a week in Slovakia, from June 6 to 13.
She will present her project Building Bridges through the Arts, which deals with arts programming and marketing. She will also speak about audience development, an interactive process designed to make the arts widely accessible.
For seven years Grega was an audience-development manager at Sydney Opera House. She has worked extensively in Brisbane - as a lecturer in marketing for Griffith University, Queensland College of Art, as a manager of Redcliffe Entertainment Arts Centre, and community project coordinator for Queensland Performing Arts Trust.

Grega will arrive in Slovakia after visiting Bulgaria and Hungary. Because of her Slovak origins, this trip is a symbolic return to her roots - her father fled the Nazi occupation of Slovakia in 1944.

Her lectures will be conducted in English with the assistance of an interpreter. One of them, a 50-minute presentation followed by a four-hour workshop, will take place on Tuesday, June 10, from 10:00 at Studio 12 of the Theatre Institute on Jakubovo námestie in Bratislava.
