    Amanda McDonald-Crowley is a New York-based Australian curator and facilitator


    Amanda McDonald Crowley is the Director of the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT). ANAT is Australia’s peak network and advocacy body for artists working with technology. The role of ANAT is to advocate, support and promote the arts and artists in the interaction between art, technology and science, nationally and internationally. Since its inception in 1985 ANAT has been at the forefront of the movement to position artists as active participants in the ‘information age’. ANAT maintains a database and artists files of artists working with technology throughout Australia, and acts as an advocacy and networking organisation for artists working in these areas assisting artists to develop their art practice, to forge links with science and industry, and developing and promoting opportunities for Australian artists to exhibit their work nationally and internationally. Information is disseminated though our newsletters and on our world wide web site. Prior to working with ANAT Amanda worked on a National Multimedia Training Strategy being undertaken by Arts Training Australia during 1995, doing research and industry consultation to determine training and education requirements for the multimedia industry. From 1990 to 1995, she was employed at the Australia Council, the federal government’s arts funding and advisory body. From 1988-1990 she was administrator of Electronic Media Arts (Australia) Limited which ran the Australian Video Festival, and prior to that worked in various capacities in the visual arts for organisations such as Artspace Gallery in Sydney, the Australian Bicentennial Exhibition and the Biennale of Sydney. Amanda is also currently a member of the board of the Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts and Co-chair of its International Advisory Committee. She writes occasionally for Australian art journals such as RealTime and Artlink.
