Screech Arts is delivered and supported by a committed team of facilitators and volunteers.
With a shared passion for empowering others to unleash their creative spirit, the Screech Arts team are both teachers and friends. They are always looking for ways to enhance our program offering and ensure our programs are fully accessible.
Martina Cross | Screech Arts State Wide Coordinator and Facilitator
Martina’s passion for the performing arts flourished when she joined Screech Arts as a support worker.
Watching Screech Arts’ participants grow and develop throughout the program is one of Martina’s favourite moments in the job. For Martina, the staff, volunteers and creative participants are at the heart of Screech Arts’ success.
Martina brings performing arts passion and expertise with her Bachelor of Arts in Applied Theatre. You’ll find Martina in a variety of performance roles – from directing to script writing. Her personal favourite is front of stage where the magic happens.
