This week we welcome Annabel Davis to CuriousWorks, as she takes up the challenge of forging new commercial and industry partnerships for the company.

We’ve created the role of Partnerships Manager as part of our ambitious plans to take our work to larger audiences, broaden our funding base and expand our client commissions.

Annabel comes to us from the Australian Writers’ Guild, where she was instrumental in developing their Pathways Program which linked talented writers with producers and key industry decision-makers.

During her six years with AWG, she also helped lead the establishment of Scripted Ink, which provides world-first development opportunities to Australian writers.

Annabel has extensive experience in creating proposals for key arts and film funding bodies, as well as working for major TV channels, Arts NSW, and boutique film and video production companies.

We’re confident this background will prove beneficial as she aims to cultivate mutually beneficial and long lasting partnerships within the arts, film, government, corporate and philanthropic sectors.

“I am thrilled to be joining the team at CuriousWorks at a time when the industry is genuinely seeking out stories from a different Australia,” Annabel said.

“I hope to be able to bring together my longstanding interest in community development with my experience in the screen industry to get these stories, which celebrate the Australian cultural voice in all its diversity, out to the world.”
