In 2012, Erica ran away to Melbourne to join Circus Oz as their Marketing and Communications Coordinator, and to the horror of her Sydney friends and family, decided that life is better down south. After leaving Circus Oz in March 2016, and following 18 months of animal studies courses at Melbourne Polytechnic, Erica returned to her first love – arts marketing – at Polyglot Theatre.
Erica attended Charles Sturt University (Bathurst) from 2007-2009, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Communication – Theatre/Media). She has worked as a stage manager, production manager, festival coordinator, front of house and box office manager, and arts administrator. From April 2011-April 2012, Erica discovered the joys of arts marketing as the Communications Coordinator at PACT centre for emerging artists.
Her favourite part of the job is forming strong, collaborative working relationships with so many wonderful people – artists and creative personnel, production staff, photographers and videographers, designers, printers, publicists, journalists, bloggers, and other arts administrator and marketing types.
