Analogue leadership in a digital world

Zoë Cobden-Jewitt

Zöe is a passionate advocate for the arts, in particular music and education, and its combined power to transform. She was born in Sydney, but returned to the UK with her family in 1986 and has a Music degree from the University of Birmingham, and a Masters in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Westminster (gained on returning to London following a successful stint broadcasting on 2MBS FM in Sydney).

After working with the English National Opera, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and London’s Classical Opera Company (now The Mozartists) Zöe returned to Sydney to take up the role of Philanthropy Manager for Sydney Opera House before joining Bell Shakespeare as Head of Development. Following her time with Bell Shakespeare she joined the Sydney Dance Company as Director of Development and in 2019 joined Musica Viva Australia as Director of Development.

It was during her time with Bell Shakespeare that Zöe began working with Intersticia and she has been instrumental in helping us develop and nurture our Creative Fellowship programme.

Zöe has recently been admitted to the 2023 Oxford Cultural Leaders Programme.
