"IN A GENTLE WAY YOU CAN SHAKE THE WORLD” - MAHATMA GHANDI

Chloe hails from little old Radelaide and has moved over to this football-mad city for her dream job at PROCK. She has a a background in communications and theatre, and having worked for Yelp! and the Design Institute of Australia, it’s safe to say she’s got a wealth of knowledge to draw upon for her role as the Online Program Coordinator (unicorn…) here at PROJECT ROCKIT.

Through completing a Bachelor in Creative Arts (Hons) and a Cert IV in Arts Administration, she realised her passion was working with young people in creative ways to promote change. Chloe has a love for horror films, a well-structured sentence and German food. She also doesn’t want to brag, but she has the best 80s party playlist you’ll come across.

As a playwright, her works have focussed on youth issues and children's development. She’s won the State Theatre Company’s Young Playwrights award, had two of her plays have toured to the Festival of Student Theatre in Brisbane, several successful Adelaide Fringe seasons, and has worked with Sydney theatre company, Disco Turtle Productions to develop children’s theatre for touring. 

Passionate about promoting awareness and opportunities for young people to create and be heard, Chloe is excited to combine her skills with the team and get PROJECT ROCK IT Online out to students.
