As a public art curator, cultural planner and project manager Merran’s expertise includes the development of public art for a wide range of landscape, architectural and urban infrastructure projects. She has commissioned, curated and managed the delivery of public art both nationally and internationally. Recently she has specialized in public art strategies and master plans for government transit projects, working across multidisciplinary teams for Transport for NSW to strategically integrate public art into station architecture and engineering.

Extensive project management experience has resulted in innovative and cost effective approaches to art delivery, which often include strategic community engagement processes. She works with artists in creative and collaborative conversation to generate culturally vibrant and socially activated public spaces.
