Sarah Gall is the founder and director of Browning Street Studios, an arts incubator enterprise situated in West End’s Browning Street. The business is ultimately focussed on providing the space (literal and figurative) for local musicians to build successful livelihoods for themselves as arts practitioners, and through these practitioners the business offers a range of services to the public

In 2002, Sarah’s career took a further turn when placed as an Honours practicum student on a festival project jointly managed by Kooemba Jdarra Indigenous Performing Arts and Queensland Community Arts Network. Sarah went on to write an Honours Thesis (which received a High Distinction as well as several State and National awards) on these issues, also publishing papers in Queensland Planner and Ignite Theatre Journal.

Upon graduating Sarah undertook a range of professional work, including a period as a Community Arts Project Officer with Brisbane City Council, a sessional pianist in a local theatre, a workshop facilitator and a University tutor and guest lecturer.

Sarah has also undertaken research work in a variety of contexts, predominately within the tertiary sector. Sarah has also worked extensively as a private consultant, specialising in the activation and assessment of arts spaces and events, particularly in urban contexts. Clients have included Queensland Department of Housing, Brisbane City Council, University of Queensland, Cairns Regional Council, West End Community Association and Delfin Lend Lease. Sarah has also had a range of experiences as an educator, both within and outside music, strengthening an ability to achieve good outcomes with students.
