Rose Ricketson is a freelance creative producer and consultant who specialises in community-centred collaborative projects, working between Canberra and NSW.

She draws from a diverse range of skills and extensive experience in curating and producing arts and community-based projects and programs for over 15 years from large-scale theatre, to intimate mothers circles. From cutting-edge cabaret to community-driven oral history projects. From art programs delivered to women in prison, to nights of feasting and song in the national gallery.
She has worked with award-winning companies, filmmakers, artists and organisations to deliver daring and fresh projects to the world.
Rose approaches the process of building a project as sacred and delicate - a tender thing that requires care, patience, and a curatorial harnessing of all the strengths of each collaborator. She finds the challenge of building strong and diverse relationships around ideas extremely exciting, which helps them thrive.
Rose values intimacy, risk-taking, and courage when collaborating with community leaders, artists, visionaries, creatives, and organisations.
As a mother, artist, community maker, thinker, maternity care advocate, and writer, Rose brings a wealth of experience and skills to her work.
