Robyn Gawenda


Robyn Gawenda is currently the Executive Director and Co-CEO of Footscray Community Arts Centre, an internationally renowned independent arts precinct grounded in Melbourne’s inner West. Footscray Community Arts advocates for change and a new perspective on Australia’s collective identity through art.

Robyn is passionate about championing creativity and community engagement as key drivers of representative, socially just and vibrant places to live. She is interested in exploring ways we can mobilise and support communities to have greater agency in policy making and conversations shaping our society.

Robyn’s main avenue for doing this work is through the nerdiest possible jobs in the arts industry – embracing spreadsheets, business lingo and preparing briefings with great zeal. She is currently undertaking an MBA at Melbourne Business School and is on the Board of Theatre Network Australia.
