Melinda Ballard

I am a photographer and cultural producer who has driven creative collaborations in local government in Melbourne and as a consultant in Norway, with sustainability, emerging artists and marginalised communities being focal points of my practice.

I have spent considerable time working in remote Indigenous arts centres in the NT and on community-centric and socially-engaged arts initiatives, and am committed to the creation of opportunities for participation by artists and community members, in relevant, unique experiences. I have also completed research as part of my MA into ethical dimensions and responsibilities in social practice. Recent clients include City of Melbourne Arts House, Norway's largest music festival, HOVE, the United Nations Environment Program and Arctic Council, Canal Street Jazz and Blues Festival, White Night Melbourne.
