Olivia Wang is an emerging theatre maker and ardent practitioner of the Arts. Since 2014 Olivia has appeared in several films, TV plays and web series in China. After studying acting in NIDA in Sydney in 2017, she came to Melbourne in 2018 and has shifted her focus from screen to stage performance. Recently she graduated from the University of Melbourne with a degree in Arts Management specialising in performing arts.

As a newly arrived arts manager she sensed that cross-cultural themed projects lacked real support but worth exploring, and this is exactly what she is passionate about. Olivia is the creative initiator of Cross Encounters, and she is dedicated to making it a force leading towards arts and cultural exchange and collaboration between Australia and Asia.
