Councillor - Leonie Besley

The University of Melbourne / EMC

I am currently completing my masters of teaching with the University of Melbourne. I am a practicing artist working in site specific installation artworks, collage and painting. I also relief and CRT work with EMC teaching across 7-12, predominantly in the arts sector. My two teenage children and I moved from Cairns north QLD to Victoria 18 months ago and are learning to embrace the cold!

I am an active and motivated person. I will contribute where necessary to achieve the strategic goals of AEV. I can utilise my hospitality background with my arts and education knowledge to enrich programs, conversations and projects.
