Ong Wei Lin, Joanna
Passionate about accessibility and inclusion, Joanna believes her role as an arts manager is to enable audiences of all abilities to enjoy and participate in the arts. She is committed to building meaningful connections and engagement through the arts.
Joanna has worked with several local leading arts organisations such as Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, National Gallery Singapore and Singapore Repertory Theatre in various capacities. She has spearheaded two ground-up initiatives — the SG Arts Channel, an arts resource and event listing broadcast channel on Telegram, and ViaRT Award, a children’s recycled art competition.
With a diverse work experience spanning marketing, performing arts production, community engagement and accessibility management, Joanna possesses the confidence and adaptability to work in any environment. As an inquisitive learner with a drive for excellence, Joanna is constantly in pursuit of new knowledge, insights and experiences. Joanna hopes to share her passion and knowledge with others, to pave the road towards an inclusive and accessible arts ecosystem.
