Jack Quigley - The Wilderness Society Australia. Co-Producer of the Great Concert.
"Cy works with full heart and mind.
I approached Cy to work on The Great Concert to create the experiential and AV design for a large event to raise support and funds for The Great Forest National Park Victorian environmental campaign. Cy immediately took our noble purpose into his heart and through an intensive process of creative direction and production management aided the campaign in raising over thirteen thousand dollars in one evening.
His strategies to get the most out of our team of a mix of professionals and volunteers within a limited budget for maximum social and political impact was impressive. Working within a heritage listed building Cy had to effectively problem solve his art installations and did so successfully. Cy’s creative interdisciplinary skill sets of audio, video, art installation/performance mixed with his savvy for media contracts and production streamlining were all brought to the table during the production pipeline and in spades on the night of the event. A highlight was him premiering a video collaboration with artist Minna Leunig.
Cy’s ambition for combining art and business in life is inspiring. Cy is a trusted and committed team member who is dedicated to drawing influential people together to make the world a better place. He is a long time member of The Wilderness Society and passionate about conservation of art, culture and mother nature"
