Ros Abercrombie – Creative Producer, Artlands Victoria

Ros is committed to the concepts of collaboration as vital to building arts projects and event spaces and believes in the need to be innovative, accessible and founded in a practice that is multidisciplinary and participatory. A signature of her approach is bringing together emerging, established and community artists to stimulate dialogue and create new works in accessible environments. Ros considers arts space as a cultural landscape as more than the physical place, she designs programs for the spaces in-between, crafting unique contemporary experiences.

Ros is currently the Creative Producer for Artlands Victoria. Recent projects include Festival Director and CEO Shepparton Festival, Creative Director Illuminate Festival, Program Director for Moomba Festival and New Year’s Eve Melbourne. Prior to this, Ros completed a three-year contract in Hobart successfully directing and delivering the annual Taste Festival – Tasmania’s premier summer event. Other previous positions have included Artistic Director for On the Map, Festival Director for Mudfest10 – Melbourne University Diversity Festival, and the direction and delivery of three Moonee Valley Festivals (2005, 06 & 07).
