ANN BOUNDS / Secretary

Ann began her professional career as a teacher/educator with an evolving focus on designing learning for secondary students and professional learning for teachers. From there she moved into the public policy space working collaboratively with executive teams in a number of departments across the Territory and Australian Government.

Ann’s interest in theatre began during her undergraduate study and considers herself fortunate to have extended this interest to the Street Theatre as a Board member.

As a former educator of young people and adults, Ann values highly the connections that can be made through the creative action of theatre and its power to inspire critical thinking by the viewer.
