Exit interview: Robert Love, Riverside Theatres

After 20 years at Riverside Theatres Parramatta, Love reflects on his career and considers his future.

After two decades in charge of Parramatta’s Riverside Theatres, Robert Love believes it’s time to shift his focus and look for new challenges.

‘After 20 years, you sort of begin to reflect and think, and also, I need to lift my gaze – to start to look beyond what’s happening in Parramatta. I’ll always have a strong interest in what happens in Parramatta and Western Sydney, but it’s time to look to other sorts of things that I can potentially contribute to,’ the respected arts administrator told ArtsHub.
