District Arts Manager

A singer, producer and arts facilitator, Jan graduated from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design in 2012 with an MA in Arts Management (Hons). Her lifetime passion for the arts has led to years of involvement in choirs and facilitating arts events. Jan chaired Creative Coromandel for its first five years and is excited about the next phases of development for the Trust, having passed the baton to friend and colleague, Len Salt, in 2021. She believes that collaboration, co-operation and the celebration of diversity within any community or organisation, big or small, is the fastest route to enablement, wellbeing and the creation of social “glue”. She attempts to hold Creative Coromandel’s values always at the centre of her consciousness and actions: mā te tika, mā te pono, me te aroha (doing that which is right; honesty; with love/compassion). Jan has been past Chair and Trustee as a Mercury Bay Representative
