Cecile is truly at home with the arts



8 June 2023

Cecile Knight is a vital piece to the Gold Coast’s cultural scene, working as an Exhibitions Officer at the HOTA (Home of the arts) Gallery. With exhibitions often planned years in advance, Cecile works closely with planners, curators, engineers, painters, and artists to execute some of the city's most prominent exhibitions.

Cecile credits her success in this role to the people she's met along the way, including her time at Southern Cross University. "I had really great lecturers and I still follow their work," she said.  

"Studying helped me to understand the artists that I work with today. It was very valuable." 

Cecile's time studying in the Northern Rivers community left a lasting impression on her and provided a stimulating environment that helped shape her career.  

“The arts and culture scene there is huge, stretching from Murwillumbah all the way down to Yamba. I really enjoyed my time there and it was a lovely place to study,” she said.
