Melbourne Fringe Creative Director & CEO Jayne Lovelock has announced she will be leaving the organisation in March. After three successful years in the role, she has decided to move on and pursue new challenges.
“After three phenomenal years at Melbourne Fringe, it is time for me to pass the reigns to a new Creative Director,” said Ms Lovelock. “Having lead the organisation through a period of significant growth and artistic success, it is wonderful to be leaving the organisation at a time of strength and exciting potential.”
“The success of Melbourne Fringe to date is the direct result of the talent and professionalism of Melbourne’s independent artists and arts workers, hence I look forward to seeing the Festival reach even greater heights in 2015.”
Ms Lovelock first became involved with Melbourne Fringe in 2004 as an artist and independent producer. She was recruited as Marketing & Development Manager in 2011, before taking on the role of CEO in mid-2012. She leaves the organisation after the most successful Melbourne Fringe Festival in the event’s 32-year history. Last year the Festival’s largest-ever audience enjoyed 400 shows featuring 4,800 participating artists.
