It is with great appreciation that we farewell Meredith Okell, Director of Communications and Engagement who leaves IFACCA after six years with the Secretariat.
We would like to thank Meredith for her years of service and commitment to the Secretariat, the Federation and the wider arts and cultural sector community. Meredith has made an invaluable contribution to the Secretariat and has played a critical leadership role to transform the organisation since 2017; and we thank her for her thought leadership in editorial and content development, project leadership on the 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture in Malaysia (2019), and the co-design of our Strategy 2021-2026. We particularly acknowledge her foresight and work to deliver our digital transformation, well ahead of the pandemic and its impact on our normal ways of working, and to entirely review our communications and engagement strategies. On behalf of the Secretariat and the Federation we farewell Meredith and wish her all the best for her new projects.
