I have been actively involved with the development of contemporary art and the presentation of exhibitions, publications, cultural exchanges and public projects for hundreds of artists, galleries, art museums and contemporary art spaces at a national and international level.

I have organised the visits of a number of significant international curators and biennales directors, participated in Australian international promotions and established International Visual Art strategies.

I have worked with state and regional art galleries, funding agencies and all levels of Government, on policy development, funding, exhibition management, competitions, research and publications.

Anna was the consultant to financial giant AMP for their move to award winning Quay Quarter Tower and worked on their art policy and the collection displayed in their new offices.
