Gabrielle Cummins


Gabrielle Cummins believes in the transformative and revitalising power of the arts in all its disciplines and has dedicated her career to arts activation and entrepreneurship.

Having demonstrated her commitment over three decades to the arts, publishing and digital marketing industries in Singapore and Melbourne in both public and private spheres, Gabrielle is skilled as a founder, director, fundraiser, curator, and marketing and stakeholder manager.

Gabrielle has specialised in festival direction, contemporary, fine and street art curation, sponsorship procurement, pr & marketing, artist management, film production and digital platform start-up. With a Bachelor of Arts from The University of Melbourne, her career highlights include being Artistic Director of the 100-event arts festival in Singapore – 50 Bridges (Australia’s official gift to Singapore for its 50th birthday) (2015), co-founding Australasian Arts Projects and art gallery (2010) and most recently, founding a digital wellbeing platform (2020).

Gabrielle is compelled by how the arts can enrich the lives of individuals and communities and is passionate about enabling artists, artistic practice and audiences in cities where she lives. Her board membership of Chunky Move, with its rich, bold voice and reputation as a driver of contemporary dance, is a key opportunity to contribute to the distinct, vibrant and internationally renowned Melbourne arts scene.
