    Racheal is a Deaf circus artist based in Queensland. She has worked with Vulcana Women’s Circus in various roles since 2011, and is developing the foundation of the Deaf Arts Network for SEQ, formerly Deaf Arts Queensland, in partnership with Access Arts Queensland

    Racheal submitted a successful Expression of Interest to participate in the Sync Leadership Program held 22-26 October 2014.

    Sync is a training program that focuses on the interplay between leadership and disability. It provides a fresh perspective and challenges deep-seated thinking about leadership and disability. Designed to be to be different to other training programs for people with disability, it takes its inspiration and name from syncopation – the emphasis on the un-emphasised beat.

    Sync provided Racheal with the essential tools to help her reach her goals. “The Sync Leadership Program is radically different to other leadership programs that I have participated in as it was more about exploring and discussing individual strength and weaknesses. Also the tools include identifying personality and leadership styles, which has helped shape my thinking when collaborating with other leaders in the arts industry.”
