Los Angeles: Sam Cook

If you’re in Los Angeles or heading that way soon, we are pleased to announce that Sam Cook is our new Los Angeles Member Relations Representative.

A First Nations Australian arts, entertainment and tech professional, Sam is a cross-artform practitioner, educator, arts manager and leader. A retired musician, she was the Director of The Dreaming Festival and a programmer of the Woodford Folk Festival.

Artistically, Sam is a playwright, writer, visual artist and graphic designer. Administratively, Sam started working in Aboriginal publishing at Broome-based Magabala Books ahead of becoming the CEO of Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company before launching her company The KMBA Creative Agency.

Sam is currently a member of the First Nations Independent Arts Alliance, Artivist Entertainment, International Association of Blacks In Dance, Australians in Music and is a co-founder of the United Stages Collective, the first Aboriginal Australian-led creative ensemble in the USA.

In addition to Sam in Los Angeles, please make sure to reach out to our other International Reps with Mark Moffatt in Nashville and Adam Townsend in London assisting members in the UK and Europe.

Whether it’s a question about royalties, re-locating or you’d like to meet, they’d love to help. It’s been too long since they have seen many of you. Additionally, if you’re looking for creative or business space, Mark can help with arrangements at InDo and Adam has access at the world-renowned RAK Studios.
