Arts advocate

Ayesha co-founded the GRID Series program in 2013 to reveal a more accurate reflection of creative expression around Australia, by supporting and connecting emerging creatives from outer suburban areas from under-served communities to the industry. This artist development platform is committed to visibility and storytelling through uninhibited original music, art and film-making. GRID provides mentorship, high-quality content and short documentaries that share the artists' personal stories. Artists have gone on to win national music prizes, and perform at the Sydney Opera House and the South By Southwest festival. This grant will help Ayesha continue to cultivate an environment for artists to thrive, attain visibility and deliver unique creative content.
