Biography

Fiona Menzies began her career as a policy adviser and chief of staff to two Commonwealth Government Arts Ministers. During that time, she worked on policies across the portfolio including arts funding, collecting institutions, and film & television. Many significant reforms were implemented during this time, including the Nugent Review into the Major Performing Arts Sector and changes to the Taxation Act to improve incentives for private giving to the arts (and other not-for-profit sectors). Following her time in Government, Fiona’s roles have included a stint in the private sector, as well as for a children’s cancer NFP, with her most recent past role being Development Manger at the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas, where she was part of the inaugural team that set up and launched this now integral part of Melbourne’s cultural scene.

Fiona’s current role as CEO of Creative Partnerships Australia ideally links her experience of government and the arts with her knowledge of and interest in private giving and corporate social responsibility, which stem back to her studies in Australia and the UK relating to art collecting and philanthropy.
