Tessa Yeoman

Philanthropy & Partnerships Lead
Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland

The Arts Foundation is thrilled to welcome the amazing Tessa Yeoman to our Tāmaki Makaurau contingent. Tessa is focussed on building Kotahi, our generous giving collective – bringing together arts lovers across the country who are fuelling creativity with their generosity and passion for the arts.

Tessa joins us after eight years as Marketing and Development Manager for the Auckland Writers Festival Waituhi o Tāmaki, Australasia’s largest literary festival (making her our go-to for book recommendations). Prior to that, Tessa worked in corporate and research roles including 13 years in London and Sydney.

Books, art and theatre are her thing (which we love!) – and since 2011 she's been raising the next generation of art-enthusiasts in form of twin boys. Hats off!
