Vivid Sydney Creative Director calls time

The Vivid Sydney Festival Creative Director, Ignatius Jones AM, is taking a break from his role with Vivid Sydney.

24 July 2019

“After almost a decade leading the creative development of Vivid Sydney, the time feels right to step away and take some personal time out. Vivid is an all-consuming project leaving little time for anything else and I am looking forward to working on other projects.”

Destination NSW CEO and Executive Producer of Vivid Sydney Sandra Chipchase said: “Ignatius Jones is an Australian creative icon and his input into Vivid has been immense. I am delighted that Ignatius has agreed to continue to assist us as a creative consultant where required so his experience, skills and enormous talent will not be lost to NSW. Ignatius will also be on call to assist us with any creative input needed for the myriad pipeline projects under consideration.”

Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres echoed these sentiments saying: “Ignatius is one of our nation’s leading creative talents. I want to acknowledge his enormous contribution to the success of what is now Australia’s largest event. I wish him well in all future endeavours and look forward to his continued advice.”

A thank you function will be held for Ignatius in the coming weeks.
