My name is Shelley Pisani, the owner and Creative Producer of The Ideas Distillery, specialising in arts-led innovation. 

I have 29 years of experience in the arts industry from studio artist to gallery director, curator, consultant and founder of not-for-profit organisations and creative businesses.  


I specialise in producing projects in the areas of visual arts and design, public art, place activation, multiarts, festivals and events.  My background and qualifications in arts management have lead to mentoring regional artists and leading industry skill development. I have also played a strong role in local


government arts and cultural policy and strategy development and led a number of significant arts sector funded initiatives.

I am so grateful to have a career that allows me to be a practicing artist whilst supporting communities and other artists to reach their full potential through the arts.
