Gallus Arts Advisory is the performing arts consultancy run by Sophie Travers. Since launching Gallus in 2006, Sophie became International Development Manager, Europe for Australia Council for the Arts. Thus Gallus is dormant as an advisory, although this site will be periodically updated with arts experiences and projects of relevance to the ongoing Gallus endeavour. Sophie developed Gallus to become one of the most dynamic and responsive supporters of the performing arts in Australia. With a list of over seventy clients, Gallus has maintained a broad focus whilst making timely interventions in the operations and initiatives of small, medium and large scale arts bodies across Australia. Projects have ranged from policy research and review papers for Government to one-to-one planning sessions for independent artists, covering anything from the first steps in strategic planning to international tour producing.
