Robyn Archer AO, the highly acclaimed and awarded singer, writer, director, Artistic Director and public advocate of the Arts has become an Arts & Health Foundation Ambassador.
“I wholly endorse the work of the Arts & Health Foundation. As a child who was born with every allergy known to man and developed severe chronic asthma at 2 years old, I know just how valuable the arts are in bringing hope, optimism and real improvement to those with health challenges. Drawing, painting and reading from my sickbed made me happier, and singing and swimming prevented my asthma from being so much worse. Through the arts I have a fantastic active life and have suffered absolutely no setbacks because of my health. I have been singing professionally for fifty years – and still going strong. I hope that that the Arts & Health Foundation can give such a gift to many others.”
Robyn’s other current roles include Creative Director of the Centenary of Canberra 2013; Artistic Director of The Light in Winter (Federation Square, Melbourne); Chair of the Artistic Advisory Board Adelaide College of the Arts and; patron to Brink Productions, Arts Law Society, Australian Art Orchestra, Australian Script Centre, Institute of Postcolonial Studies, Ambassador Adelaide Football Club, International Development Agency.
