Join us at East Terrace Continental for our monthly networking breakfast. 


Our guest speaker for the September networking breakfast is Michelle Cripps, the inaugural Director of the Centre for Creative Health (CCH) at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital. 


The positive impact of the arts to improve physical, psychological and spiritual health and well-being is recognised around the world. Michelle will talk about her role forging working relationships between the Arts, Design and Health Sectors; and the various best-practice arts and design programs, projects and other creative initiatives provided by the CCH to the patients, visitors and staff in hospitals across the Central Adelaide Local Health Network.


Michelle became the inaugural Director of the Centre for Creative Health in 2016. With a background in arts education, event management and philanthropy, and having a career spanning across many government organisations, Michelle brings a wealth of knowledge to her role as director.


Michelle started her career as a secondary school teacher, before becoming a Tasmania education consultant. Michelle then worked as a Fellow Lecturer at the University of Tasmania where she completed a Master of Education.


Please order and pay for your breakfast on arrival, and then head upstairs to join us in the balcony room.


If you haven't been to a breakfast before, don't be shy, bring a friend, and enjoy the friendly company of the GLAM sector in SA.
