We are delighted to announce Rani Pramesti as our new Program Producer, joining us in delivering the Victorian Independent Producers Initiative (VIPI).
Rani will be joining us from mid-September to get the VIPI project underway.
Rani Pramesti is a proud Chinese-Javanese-Indonesian woman living, working and learning on Kulin Country (Narrm, Melbourne). Like many in the performing arts, she wears many hats: as an independent performance maker, an intercultural producer and an advocate for the arts. Since graduating from the Victorian College of Arts in 2013, Rani has dedicated herself to collaborations with underrepresented groups in the performing arts, working intersectionally with culturally diverse practitioners, First Nations communities and people with lived experiences of disability. Throughout 2015-2016, as an Associate Producer at Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC), Rani played a pivotal role in curating and delivering capacity building programs with diverse emerging producers, artists and facilitators. Throughout 2017-2018, Rani worked as a Youth Development Officer (Arts and Events) at the City of Maribyrnong’s Phoenix Youth Hub and was quickly promoted to Team Leader of Resources, Facility and Performing Arts. In 2019, Rani has been developing CreativesofColour.com: curated conversations with creatives of colour, commissioned by Diversity Arts Australia and delivering projects with Australia Council for the Arts’ Capacity Building program.
