About Libby Brookbanks: In 2013, I had the pleasure of working for Creative New Zealand as Marketing and Public Programmes Coordinator for the Venice Biennale. During this time I had insight into the challenges and significance of representing New Zealand at Venice. The history and progression of NZ@Venice is truly fascinating and rewards lively discussion.
