Learning & Engagement Project Officer

Kausalya Vijayan Kumaran

Kausalya, hailing from the vibrant city of Singapore, has over four years of experience as a marketing and arts manager. With a Bachelors of Arts (Hons) Degree from the National University of Singapore, Kausalya has also worked on large-scale regional commercial projects across the Asia-pacific region in her professional years.

She ventured into Theatre and Stage Performances at 11 years and has been volunteering her time as stage and technical manager for local Tamil Theatre productions back in her hometown. Her passion for the Arts also fuelled her to contribute to the Arts eco-system by joining the National Arts Council of Singapore to further build and support Artists and the Arts.

She strongly believes that Arts should be accessible and fun! Through finding a need to bring Theatre to younger children via different languages culminated in her spearheading and initiating one of the first bilingual Theatre academies in Singapore for early years children.

In between her professional endeavours, she works with smaller businesses to increase their online presence through Digital and Social marketing or teaching kids! She also was an active volunteer at various NPOs and performed for an Indian Percussion Street Troupe!

Her journey has taken her from the bustling streets of Singapore to the cultural hubs of Western Australia, where she is dabbling in everything from arts management to community outreach. She is always eager to embrace new challenges and make a positive impact within different communities.
