Christina Giorgio – Arts Business and Creative Life Consultant
If we don’t already know each other from past workshops, projects, my Facebook page or some other arty pastime, I’m really pleased to meet you! I’m Christina and for as long as I can remember I’ve lived and breathed all things creative. I got my start aged 3 directing reluctant cousins in theatre performance extravaganzas and belting out 80s love ballads while rocking it on a Casio keyboard (that I didn’t actually know how to play). These days I’m a singer/songwriter but I’ve been a film maker, actor and even briefly tried my hand as a fair trade fashion designer. I live and work surrounded by inspiring nature and world-class culture with my family in the super creative and hippy heartland of Byron Bay, Australia.
When I’m not working on my own creative practice or immersed in family life, I work holistically with arts professionals on their creative businesses and lives and arts businesses and organisations on their strategy and planning. I’m also an arts-events passionate, specializing in grass-roots community events.
Based on 20 years experience working in the creative industries at a policy, cultural strategic planning and community arts level (plus lessons learnt from my own ongoing life-long, creative adventure!), I’m here to support you to thrive emotionally, financially and most importantly, creatively.
I can help you through a range of arts services
- arts business and creative life consulting for individuals, businesses and organisations
- arts business and creative life workshops, online courses and presentations designed for arts professionals and creative minds.
- custom and annual creative life retreats in Bali, Byron Bay and beyond
- strategic website and content development
- free resources, online courses, webinars and more for creatives and arts professionals

what people are saying
“Christina’s work is excellent – she has an energy and a clarity and a great creative mind that can see possibilities and potential in all kinds of things.”
"It feels like a line in the sand has been drawn between indecision and stress to a proactive approach which is exciting."
I’ve got a much better idea of the kind of support I need to be in business and having Christina following you up, is a bit like having an agony aunt sorting you out occasionally…just what I need. Highly recommended.
“Blown away by Christina’s passion, empathy, lucidity, and knowledge.”
