Nomination for the President Role:


Richard Burt 
Richard, born in Christchurch, comes from an Education background of Fine Arts, holding both a B.F.A (Bachelor of Fine Arts) and a Graduate Teaching Diploma. From this, he has worked as a High School Teacher, for New Zealand Artist, Darryn George, and for long standing Art Dealership Gallery in Christchurch, Brooke Gifford Gallery during his formative years.

Richard now currently works for Sotheby’s International Realty in Parnell. Richard is an effective communicator, has a high level of professionalism while maintaining politeness, keeping a balance of respect. Being proactive rather than being reactive. Translating this to Rainbow Auckland would be managing a stress, hassle-free process by listening to needs and wants.

Put simply a stance of growth and maintaining membership would be a top priority for Richard with Rainbow Auckland. This would be trying to reach members of the community who do not feel they can join or those who do not feel a connection with Rainbow Auckland. 

Richard Burt. BFA, GradDip T
