Adrienne Clothier

Funding and Finance

Meet Adrienne, our go-to human for all things numbers!

When she’s not crunching numbers and keeping the books, Adrienne helps artists tackle their project budgets and seek out funding opportunities.

Adrienne has been with Creative Waikato from the get-go and has loved being a part of the region’s growing creative scene.

She’s no stranger to working in the arts, having previously been the administrator at Waikato Museum and the Hamilton Community Arts Council (Creative Hamilton).

Introduced to the stage at an early age in the rural village of Clevedon, Adrienne’s first creative love was theatre.

More behind-the-scenes these days, Adrienne is on the board of One Victoria Trust, helping to take care of The Meteor, and also looks after finances for Free Lunch Street Theatre Company.

But it’s not just theatre that she adores – Adrienne is a big fan of all artforms and is currently learning the violin, because why not?!
