Jan Wright


A singer, photographer and producer, Jan’s lifetime passion for the arts has led to the foundation of local arts organisations Mercury Bay Community Choir and Creative Mercury Bay in Whitianga.  Jan is excited to be part of the Creative Coromandel initiative, and feels honoured to chair this group in its early phase. She believes that inclusivity, collaboration and co-operation within any community or organisation, big or small, is the fastest route to enablement, wellbeing and the creation of social “glue” and she attempts always to hold these qualities in clear focus in life and her varied arts roles. Jan graduated from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design in 2012 with an MA in Arts Management (Hons).
