Clancy McDowell

Annalee Ladiges

Region: Kimberley

Having lived in Broome for 22 years, Clancy has deeply engaged with the culture, heritage and communities of the Kimberley.  She has worked with Indigenous media and traditional owner organisations, the ABC, and as a communications and media consultant. The diversity in her career has readied Clancy for her current role as the Executive Officer of the Kimberley Arts Network (KAN).   

After studying fine arts and film at the University of Sydney, Clancy worked in the film industry, and when she arrived in Broome as the television producer with Goolarri Media Enterprises, she adapted to a new cultural environment. She was with Goolarri Media Enterprise for 6 years, nurturing its small production unit and trainee camera crew. 

Then, as the ABC State Editor Multimedia WA, Clancy managed a regional team of 13 online journalists and Open Producers. Over 7 years, this role broadened her managerial and strategic skills and her understanding of digital communications.  Later, as Communications Officer at Nyamba Buru Yawuru, Clancy re-engaged with her local community and relished the creative projects there. All of these roles combined prepared Clancy for work in arts project management and community engagement; consulting for the Shire of Broome, Derby District High School and driving projects such as the Broome Fringe Festival for KAN.  

KAN is small but mighty young multi-arts organisation drawing together the threads of their creative communities to build a vibrant network which supports people to be more creative, and arts practitioners to raise their profile and increase their professional capacity.
