Andrea James

Sydney, NSW

Who is Andrea James? A Yorta Yorta/Gunaikurnai woman with mad Polish roots and very big hair. Fiercely loyal and always politically motivated, I invade contemporary art spaces to uphold rich and ever-evolving cultural traditions.

I am a trained theatremaker and Creative Producer specialising in Aboriginal performance and contemporary arts as both a practitioner and producer.  I am visionary, community-minded and ground-breaking.  I work with artists and organisations to assist them to realise their full creative and cultural potential. I set challenging artistic briefs that extend the bounds of creative and cultural practice.

I am able to identify cultural ambitions and hotbed issues and harness creative talent to enable communities to celebrate and share an enhanced culture through world-class artistic presentations across artforms utilising a high degree of professionalism to compete within national and international art circles.

In everything we do, we acknowledge that we live on Aboriginal land and constantly learn from the wisdom of First Peoples.

Where we are and the history that precedes us informs how we work and how we move forward.
