ECP is a Sydney based publicist specialising in music, theatre, dance and the visual arts.
Compelling and effective campaigns are offered across a variety of media, with a wealth of media contacts and excellent writing skills. My trademarks are a tenacity to cover every angle and achieve excellent coverage.
After completing a BA in Dance at the SA College of Advanced Education, Lord Harewood's 1988 Bicentennial Adelaide Festival was my launching pad.
In 1989I joined Sydney Dance Company and spent 6 years working on Sydney and national tours of iconic Graeme Murphy works.
In ‘94 I established my own PR agency and was contracted by leading organisations including Sydney Opera House, Bangarra, Museum of Contemporary Art, The 7th and 13th Biennale of Sydney, WOMADelaide, Arts Projects Australia and Maggie Gerrand Productions.
Together with Ree Izett we jointly managed the National Publicity for Barrie Kosky's unforgettable 1996 Adelaide Festival, with its legendary flaming Hills Hoist and Robyn's Archer 1998 Adelaide Festival with it’s sacred and profane themes and controversial poster.
