Dr Rachael Coghlan is CEO and Artistic Director of Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre, one of Australia’s leading creative centres for the development of visual art, craft and design. Rachael manages the overall operations and resources, acting as the main point of communication between the board of directors, staff, members, sponsors and government bodies. She is the public face of the organisation, curating a vibrant program of exhibitions, residencies and cross-disciplinary collaborations including the DESIGN Canberra festival which attracted 114,000 people in 2019 (a record result). She gained her PhD from the Australian National University (where she is a visiting fellow), and for 20 years worked in leadership roles in national cultural institutions. As an experienced project manager (overseeing multi-million dollar budgets), Rachael has a track record of driving cultural and business transformation projects in start-ups or established organisations seeking strategic and cultural change. She believes in people: building high performing teams, mentoring and bringing together diverse internal and external ideas and perspectives to achieve extraordinary results and collective wellbeing.

Rebecca Kais is an arts manager who approaches her work through a social impact lens. She has diverse experience across a decade-long career but has increasingly specialised in philanthropy, believing it is a powerful tool for achieving positive social outcomes through the arts. She is the Philanthropy Manager at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, where she is responsible for leading PICA’s award-winning donor program. In the same year, Rebecca was one of 25 emerging arts leaders selected from around Australia and the Indo-Pacific to participate in the Australia Council for the Arts’ Future Leaders Program. Prior to joining PICA Rebecca was Foundation Manager at the Art Gallery of Western Australia, where she led the establishment of the next gen giving program, the Next Collective.  In 2014, Rebecca was awarded a Centre for Social Impact Scholarship to complete the Graduate Certificate in Social Impact at UWA.

Judy Buchan is the Philanthropy Manager at the State Library of Victoria. She brings to her role a wealth of experience with over 20 years working within the philanthropic and cultural sectors including the Australia Council, Creative Victoria, Creative Partnerships Australia, and the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation to name a few. Judy also has a professional background from the political & corporate sectors and has been an independent director of the Pinnacle Charitable Foundation for the last 8 years.
