Anna Reece has been announced as the next Perth Festival artistic director from 2025, taking over from Iain Grandage.
She continued to work at Perth Festival for more than five years as head of programming and later as executive producer.
“She has already played a pivotal role in creating and delivering many Perth Festival programs and it is especially exciting to welcome such an experienced and inspiring creative and strategic force to the helm,” Mr Ungar said.
“Anna is internationally respected as a colleague, collaborator and leader, and widely admired for her artistic sensibilities and curatorial clarity.”
“I acknowledge the immense responsibility that comes with this role, to our Noongar community, to our vibrant artistic community and to all who hold a place for Perth Festival in their hearts.”
Ms Reece is set to start working with the company in late 2023 to plan the delivery of the festivals under her leadership.
