Co-ordinating the 2017 WA Regional Arts Summit is the third role Nerida has had at Country Arts WA, previously she has been Operations Manager and General Manager. That’s if you don’t include 3 terms as a Board Member. Hailing from Kalgoorlie-Boulder, although now living in Perth, Nerida still considers herself a country girl.
Nerida’s career has mainly been in venue management, however in 2009 she changed pace and opened a dance and yoga studio in Kardinya while working part time for Country Arts WA.
After a few years full time in the studio, Nerida is excited to return to the office 2 days a week to organise the Summit – so when she’s not at her desk, she will most likely be doing Baby Ballet, or encouraging some yogis to “inhale, exhale”.
