the art liaisons story

In late 2013, I left my career, ‘working for the man’, to start my own business. I made the move for lifestyle reasons as I was increasingly struggling with the full-time work routine. I desired more freedom both in terms of time and self-expression. I wanted to be of greater service in and to the world and contribute something authentic of myself to making a better world for all, whilst also enjoying more time to just be and enjoy life. 

At the time I made the move, I was studying entrepreneurship and innovation and felt I had enough understanding of what was required to establish a small business to give it a shot. Whilst I had experience working as a winemaker and in education equity and access projects, I wanted more creativity in my work life, so I expanded on my personal interest in people, arts and the creative process and created Art Liaisons in early 2014.

Initially, Art Liaisons operated as an art agency facilitating the sale of locally made art, empowering artists to market and sell their artwork, assisting art buyers to find art and craft-works they love and value and, more broadly, advocating the role of creativity and art in achieving and sustaining healthy lives and societies. Over the years, Art Liaisons has evolved and developed, as have I, and now offers additional service offerings in alignment with my core values and beliefs.

In 2017, Art Liaisons has expanded its reach to help self-described 'non-artistic' people access their innate creativity for personal and business-related goals. As part of this diversification we began employing meditation and mindfulness techniques in our work and quickly found there is a large appetite for meditation and its benefits in its own right, particularly in the corporate world. Thus, we are responding to that demand by offering meditation and mindfulness classes for corporate and non-corporate groups and individuals, to help people access their greatest resource - themselves – in life and work. 

meditation and mindfulness classes and groups

Meditation and Mindfulness has rapidly grown in popularity in Australia in recent years and is now accepted as a valid practice and means to living a balanced, healthy, successful, happy and high-powered lifestyle, with both science and mainstream experience repeatedly demonstrating its numerous benefits. Passionate about meditation and teaching meditation, Art Liaisons is responding to this increased appetite  by offering meditation classes and groups, for all levels of meditators, in corporate and private settings. Contact us for more details and read about the numerous benefits of meditation here.

Thanks to the very creative Ian Newton for supporting local creatives - musicians, writers, artists, business owners and other radio show hosts! We had fun chatting with him on his Radio Adelaide show, Morning Juice, about making art more accessible and facilitating creativity for those who don't believe they are creative.
