After completing her BA (Design for Theatre and TV) at Charles Sturt University in 1999, Alycia Stanley was given a fantastic introduction to the rigours of setting up outdoor events in all weather conditions when she landed her first role at the Croc Festival, staged in remote Australian outback locations. Continuing her work on large-scale events, Alycia worked on the Australia Day events in Hyde Park in Sydney specializing in event operations and logistics coordinating many different components from signage to radios.
In early 2009, Alycia decided she wanted to work on the Vancouver Winter Olympics, so she set off for Vancouver a few months ahead of the Games and scored a job working as part of the Logistics team in the Ceremonies venue. This was Alycia’s first ‘Games’ experience and the start of her life of “tables and chairs”. This led to working on more ‘Games’ such as the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India and Glasgow and the Olympic Games in London and European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Alycia has also worked on large-scale arts events such as the Edinburgh Fringe and Sydney Festival. Alycia currently works in Logistics for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
