Veronica Cozzi - Chairperson
Veronica was born in the city of Santa Fe, centre east of Argentina. She emigrated to New Zealand in 2008 in search of new beginnings and adventure. She has a degree in Marketing Communication and a strong background in business management. Veronica has been passionate about arts since a very young age, putting puppets shows for her siblings growing up and writing scripts and acting in middle school plays. During her youth, Veronica has been involved in many forms of performing arts; ballet, theatre, aerial theatre, stilt dancing and juggling. She has even been a living statue! In New Zealand, Veronica has been involved with the Brazilian drums group Samba ao Vento and the Latin dance group, performing in various events. Veronica believes artistic expression is a powerful tool for self-discovery and the construction of oneʼs identity. Veronica has decided to combine her entrepreneurial spirit, business mind and passion for arts to become a member of the Board of Square Edge Community Arts in 2018. She aims to work in expanding community engagement in the arts as well as helping emerging artist to showcase their talents.
