CAITLIN WOOD

Head of Programs

“ALWAYS BE YOURSELF. UNLESS YOU CAN BE A UNICORN, THEN ALWAYS BE A UNICORN.” - ANONYMOUS

Woody is what you’ll hear Caitlin most commonly called. This affectionate nickname started thanks to her year 8 homeroom teacher and has since stuck. Caitlin graduated from Monash University & Oklahoma University, USA with a Bachelor of Performing Arts.

Caitlin has worked with a variety of organsations whose strong focus is on education, young people and empowerment; the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy, Brainstorm Productions and the Oaktree Foundation. In 2011, Caitlin was chosen to participate in the SITI Company’s (NYC) workshop series alongside a company of actors she had admired for years #lifehighlight. Whilst living in NYC, Caitlin teamed up with not-for-profit organisations Girl Be Heard with an Arts Management Fellowship and as an Assistant Director with The Possibility Project. These incredible orgranisations use theatre and education as a way to inspire young people to become leaders, challenge their own challenging circumstances and create change.

In an attempt to fill the gaps in Woody’s life story, she has also worked The Palais Theatre and WTFN in Post Production for the ‘Tour of Duty’ series with Tony Robinson for Foxtel, The History Channel.
In 2014 Woody joined the team here at PROJECT ROCKIT and could not be more happy or excited to be part of the next generation of change makers.
