Program Coordinator | Staff - Amelia Bird

Program Coordinator | Art Education Victoria

Amelia is an arts and cultural management professional working across education, public programs, exhibitions, and the delivery of arts and cultural events. She joins Art Education Victoria from Museums Victoria, where she is a key member of the the Outreach Education Team at Melbourne Museum. With a focus on regional engagement, Amelia is involved in the design and delivery of museum programs for schools, libraries, art centres, and festivals across the state of Victoria.

Amelia holds a Bachelor of Art in Art History and Education from the University of Sydney. She was then granted a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) on academic merit to complete a Masters of Arts and Cultural Management at University of Melbourne, which was awarded in 2021. Her desire to cultivate inquisitive, inclusive, and creative communities evolved not only during her tertiary studies but also through her involvement in projects at Tarrawarra Museum of Art and RISING, along with volunteering her time at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Monkey Baa Theatre Company, the Other Art Fair and the Sydney Writers Festival.

As an advocate for visual arts education, Amelia recognises its pivotal role in fostering innovation and critical thinking. Eager to bring her diverse professional background to the role of Program Coordinator at Art Education Victoria, she strives not only to inspire young creative minds but also to promote lifelong engagement in the visual arts.
