David is NewActon’s events and cultural coordinator, coordinates the MusicACT Annual Music Awards and is starting a music and arts venue in Canberra. With a background in cultural philosophy and event management, David is focused on enriching communities through artistic events. Poetry slams, contemporary exhibitions, innovative concerts and multi-arts festivals are instilled with a common philosophy: art can shape the patterns of existence into something recognisable. Nietzsche and contemporary thinkers have motivated him to show the Dionysian connections Western society habitually neglects. While at ANU he started uniVibes, a not-for-profit event management society hosting parties and concerts. He manages an improvisation funk band and compiles bands for his events.
