The Class of 2014 – 10 Year Reunion

Last month, this cohort celebrated their 10 Year Reunion in style at Valhalla. What a terrific group of Old Haileyburians!

Let’s hear about what Amy Bartholomeusz, one of the fabulous members of the Class of 2014, is up to.

Tell us a little bit about your journey to where you are today?

After graduating from Haileybury, I went on to do a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Art History. I then jumped straight into my Masters of Arts Management just before lockdown. Classes had moved online but I was able to still study and curate an online exhibition with RMIT Gallery as well as be part of the First Site Gallery student committee, producing exhibitions and programs virtually. As someone entering the arts industry this was quite a different way of engaging with art, but it helped me keep connected to my fellow creatives. I then secured a role in the local council, first at Hawthorn Arts Centre working in art events and operations to now working as an Arts Programmer with Kingston Arts.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

In five years, I see myself in New York, completing my PhD in Contemporary Art and visiting all the galleries New York has to offer.

Any hobbies or interests?

In 2019, I started a passion project posting on Instagram about art and writing book reviews. I have since been able to connect with so many avid readers and creatives and talk all things books and art. I have also had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with Dymocks, Hachette, Allen & Unwin, and Harper Collins Australia.

What did you enjoy most about your time at Haileybury?

Every day was different and interesting at Haileybury and that is what made being a student there so unique. Haileybury also helped me find my passion for art. If it wasn’t for the amazing and inspiring teachers who supported my work, I probably wouldn’t be where I am today.
