Whilst pursuing a career in youth and community services, music has remained central to Liz’s life. She studied classical piano at Elder Conservatorium in the late 70s and has performed piano and keys solo, as accompanist and in bands at private and community events along with singing in community choirs. For a decade Liz produced and broadcast a diverse range of programs with 102.1 8CCC Community Radio and more recently has co-ordinated local productions including Desert Song Festival, Desert Voice and Big Sing in the Desert, along with coordinating a very remote Festival in Walungurru (Kintore) in 2013. She returned to 8CCC in 2020 as a volunteer broadcaster showcasing original music by NT women.
Liz brings a wealth of experience working with remote communities, event and staff management skills, community development and report writing expertise into her role, along with a commitment to working collaboratively, listening to stakeholders and supporting the continued growth of independent, original music in and from central Australia.
