Shopfront Arts Co-op, Sydney’s only cross-art form organisation led by and dedicated to the artistry of young people, is bidding farewell to its Executive Director and co-CEO, Daniel Potter.

After an eight-year tenure, Potter steps back from co-leading the organisation with Creative Director and co-CEO Natalie Rose.

The partnership between Rose and Potter has been instrumental in elevating Shopfront Arts Co-op to its position as the largest youth-led arts organisation in southern Sydney and the Illawarra, and the second largest in New South Wales. Their collaborative leadership has been defined by a commitment to excellence in both creating works with young people and fostering opportunities for emerging artists. Potter’s departure marks the end of an era, but also the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the organisation.
