Martin Sawtell


Martin Sawtell started his career as a Journalist but soon traded in writing the news to become part of the creative industry that sought to make the news (for all the right reasons).

Martin has over twenty years’ experience as an arts and cultural development practitioner, arts manager and disability arts worker. Having worked both in local government roles and for Not for Profit arts producers and sector development organisations including; Kurruru Youth Performing Arts, Community Arts Network of SA, No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability and most recently Access2Arts, Martin strongly believes that arts and cultural activity offer a vehicle for people to build their understanding of diverse experiences.

Martin is passionate about empowering Deaf and disabled people to live their best life by dismantling barriers that exclude and prevent equitable participation in arts and culture.
