One of Australia’s leading cultural entrepreneurs and a proud Queenslander, Gould has been advisor to a number of major events such as Dark Mofo and Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. She will now bring her expertise to Brisbane Powerhouse.
Gould is also the former Chief Executive and Associate Artistic Director of the iconic Adelaide Festival, co-founder of Mona’s annual winter arts festival Dark Mofo, and was a champion of the inaugural Crows AFL Women’s team while a director of the Adelaide Football Club.
“For 21 years Brisbane Powerhouse has produced and presented great art and I feel privileged and excited to continue that legacy,” Gould said.
“After 17 years away I’m excited to become reacquainted with the open warmth of Brisbane and I look forward to reconnecting with artists and audiences across the city,” Gould said.
Brisbane Powerhouse Board Chair Valmay Hill said “This is undoubtedly the organisation’s biggest role yet and one that commands the ultimate balancing act of achieving both great artistic outcomes and commercial success.”
“She’s a visionary in the truest sense of the word – adept at identifying opportunities and making them happen – and primed to lead the exciting next phase of artistic, commercial and precinct development at Brisbane Powerhouse.”
