Create NSW announce structural changes


Create NSW recently announced structural changes that will take place from Monday 6 August 2018.

Create NSW will have five business units:

  • Create Investment and Engagement
  • Create Infrastructure – the NSW Government’s Cultural Infrastructure Program Management Office
  • Create Strategy & Advocacy
  • Create Business Services
  • State Archives & Records Authority

Craig Limkin will remain Executive Director of the Cultural Infrastructure Program Management Office, to be known as Create Infrastructure.

Ms Elizabeth W. Scott has been appointed the new Executive Director of Create Investment and Engagement from 1 August. Elizabeth is a global arts and culture policy specialist with over 25 years’ experience advising cultural organisations across the USA, UK and Australia. Ms Scott currently serves as Board Treasurer of the U.S. artists’ peak body, Fractured Atlas, and as an International Councillor for the UK peak body, Creative Industries Federation.

Ms Scott joins Create NSW from New York City, where she served as Chief Media & Digital Officer at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, counselled leading arts and cultural organisations and digital start-ups as an industry advisor, and managed Major League Baseball’s film and television production and licensing businesses. An international thought leader on contemporary issues facing the cultural sector, she has been a featured speaker at Harvard Business School, Harvard Law School, MIT, the University of Chicago, each of the peak body conferences of the U.S. theatre, orchestra and dance industries, and the IMZ International Music + Media Conference in Berlin. She is also an accomplished performing artist who freelances as a conductor with opera companies, choruses and festivals. I am delighted to welcome Elizabeth to the executive team at Create.

Ms Alex Bowen will be the Director of Create Strategy and Advocacy, working closely with both Executive Directors to drive strong outcomes for the sector.
