Driven by her passion for the arts, Harriet is exploring the ways in which philanthropy is playing an increasing role in the Australian cultural sectors. Harriet’s keen interest in education is motivated by institutional accessibility and inclusion, and the intersections between art and science. Previous work experience at the National Gallery of Australia and the Australian National University’s School of Physics have fuelled her passion for cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural engagement.
Harriet holds a dual bachelors of art history and visual arts, with studies in Auslan, German and Japanese languages. She is currently undertaking postgraduate studies in Communications through Deakin University and is excited to pursue a career in fundraising.
Annabelle graduated from the University of Queensland in 2020 with a Bachelor of International Studies, majoring in French and International Inequality and Development.
Annabelle has always had a keen interest in development and humanitarian work, but her passion for these areas really grew after she spent 3 months volunteering in an orphanage in Togo, West Africa, in 2016. During her degree, Annabelle spent a semester studying at the world-renowned Sciences Po in Paris, where she significantly improved her French language skills and studied politics and history.
Annabelle’s specific interests lie in the practices and approaches that lead to sustainable development outcomes, such as social enterprise and community programs, and hopes to work in these areas in the future.
