Kate Parker

Director / Principal - Arts & Culture

Kate is an accomplished cultural strategist, project manager and photographer who works at the forefront of place creation and activation. Her qualifications in architecture combined with a background in writing for coveted design publications led to work with not-for-profit arts organisation FORM where she delivered lauded projects such as the revitalisation and management of Claremont’s Goods Shed.

Her work draws on 10 years’ experience in the cultural sector, ranging from programming and place activation, developing cultural strategies and advising on cultural infrastructure, to delivering public art strategies and commissions, working alongside some of the country’s most significant contemporary artists.

Kate has a unique ability to curate place solutions from the ground up and works to conceptualise and deliver creative and cutting-edge outcomes, transforming underutilised places into bespoke destinations with cultural dimensions.

Known for her fresh, creative perspective and an approach embedded in practical reality, Kate is passionate about integrating cultural experiences into the public realm. She views culture and arts as a key connector and often works as a link between architects, developers and artists, seeking out mutual benefit to enhance project vision and identity.
