Previous Events and Projects
Director - Animal Farm, The Smell of Money and The Magnificent Seven
FULL LENGTH PLAYS AT THE MOUNT ISA THEATRICAL SOCIETY
Emma has directed three full length plays at the Mount Isa Theatrical Society to date. Directing requires the ability to stay focused on the end goal while managing hundreds of tiny details and being the key support person for the cast.
Directing a play requires a high level of organisational skills. The director is involved in every aspect of a show, from the actor's movements and lines on stage, the set design, props, costumes, lighting and sound design, managing a budget, scheduling rehearsals and so much more. It really is a labour of love.
2020 Northern Outback Business Awards
CELEBRATING BUSINESS EXCELLENCE IN THE NORTH WEST
Through her involvement in Commerce North West, Emma did the bulk of the preparation for the 2020 Northern Outback Business Awards. This included managing the awards platform from nominations through to judging. In addition she created and delivered the gala event, in a year disrupted by COVID restrictions. Using a commissioned artwork as the basis, Emma also created the collateral for the event.
Colours for Cancer 2015 -2016
A FUN AND CREATIVE FUNDRAISER
When Emma and her friend Bek needed to fundraise for the Mystery box rally, they came up with the fun and colourful event Colours for Cancer. Calling themselves "Pinkbitz" the girls created and ran this event from scratch sourcing the coloured power from India, liaising with the Mount Isa Water Board, Mount Isa City Council, the Queensland Police, the Rural Firebrigade and the SES to bring the colour to the outback. These two runs were a huge sucess and over $30,000 was donated to cancer research as a result.
Industry Led Training Pilot Program
WORK EXPERIENCE PILOT PROGRAM IN COLLABORATION WITH THE LOCAL TOURISM INDUSTRY
On behalf of Commerce North West, in partnership with the Mount Isa Tourism Association, Emma developed and implemented an industry led pilot program. This program was designed to give senior school students the opportunity to sample a wide array of careers in the tourism industry with a view to inspiring them to consider a career in the industry after school.
