Alex Meadows - Executive Director
Alex Meadows is the driving force behind The Great Spectacular. This is Alex’s first charity event of this scale. Alex is a hairdresser in Victoria Park that just knows a lot of cool, talented and theatrical people, and she makes sure she tells them every time you visit. Alex is the biggest supporter of her clients, and when they are performing Alex will try to support where she can.
Alex has been hairdressing since 1999 and what a ride it has been. She has absorbed so much of people’s stories and has learnt that the textures of tapestry for people's lives is amazing, she has learnt so much from everybody she worked with.The top three things Alex has learnt are:
- Don't judge because life is ironic
- You can't save anyone but yourself but you sure can lend a kind ear
- Don't wait to do the thing, you'll never feel ready but surrounding yourself with skilled and talented people insights growth. Humiliation is laughable in time but regret always taste like ash
So Alex is doing" the thing" surrounded by people that are skilled in areas that she is not, so that she can grow into a better person. In time all the hurdles can be laughed at, the only aftertaste will be sweet accomplishment and cotton candy.
Alex’s idea for this event has been to squish all these talented people she’s met on her journey into one room and raise money for a very worthy cause. It takes a village to raise and protect children, so she assembled one to help do just that.
