Damian Meredith

Contemporary Artist

Objective

I have many passions and interests, leaving my current path directed to an undefined end goal. The arts, culture, and music event industries are my first preference of workplace. I'm looking for a wide variety of opportunities that give me exposure to the events, arts and entertainment industries. As a performer myself, I thrive off working with creatives, and have a good insight on how to improve the performance aspects of events. I'd like to use this in my experience moving forward in a role more aimed towards coordination, leadership, and management of various projects and spaces intertwined with this event culture.
