15 March 2011 Swaab Lawyer Joins Regional Arts NSW Board

Swaab Senior Associate Naomi Messenger has been elected to the Board of Regional Arts NSW, joining the likes of Chief Executive for Sydney Festivals 2010-2012 Lindy Hume.

Regional Arts NSW is the peak body for regional arts activity in NSW.  They provide a range of services and represent a state-wide network of Regional Arts Boards in the key areas of advocacy, capacity building, communications and support.

Naomi has always had a keen interest in the arts, having completed a degree in Arts Management at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

“I worked for a local theatre company , music promoter  and art auctioneer in Perth before I decided to do my law degree.  I always wanted to do work for artists and have a great client base at Swaab which includes Regional Arts NSW,” says Naomi.

Naomi has had a long time association with the Arts Law Centre of Australia having written their best-selling book Business Structures and Governance: A Practical Guide for the Arts and has also been the recipient of their Law Contributor Prize six years in a row.

“I feel very privileged to have been considered for this role and accept it with great excitement. I think it is really important to have interests outside of the law, but to be able to mix the two as part of my career is something I am really proud of and thankful for.”
