Community connecting with the Arts

We worked with The Zingy Studio to organise an age-appropriate, children’s activity for our community ​engagement program. Miranda nailed the brief in terms of the activity but was also a wonderful facilitator, ​talking to the families and children at the event to capture valuable feedback from our community. We ​will certainly work with The Zingy Studio again in the future and recommend her for any organisations ​looking for a simple yet impactful activity for their event.

I have worked with Miranda in preparation for her Ink Studio Workshop at Incinerator Gallery during my ​time as acting program co-ordinator and now as casual gallery attendant and duty manager. Miranda is a ​well-prepared and communicative arts professional. She is a keen agent for wellbeing though arts and ​focused on quality of experience for participants. A pleasure to work with!
