We think differently about shaping the wellbeing of communities.
And we love what we do!


Our aim is to improve public places, reduce social inequalities, and give everyone a voice in the planning of their communities.

We do this by working with our clients on social planning, corporate strategy, project management, community engagement, community planning, and business improvement projects.

Projectura was founded in 2014 and is based regionally on the beautiful Murray River. We travel frequently throughout Australia.

Our approach to each project is the same. We listen deeply to our clients, and ask the right questions to refine the need. Working with our clients we plan how we’ll get to the root of the issue and unearth creative solutions. Insights are carefully captured and considered in order to deliver intelligent and thoughtful solutions. Our projects are designed to create better organisations and deliver meaningful outcomes to communities.

Karina Bonnitcha

Director

Karina has 18 years of public and private sector experience focused on fast tracking community infrastructure and creating great social outcomes for communities. Her work in consulting, retail property management, residential masterplanned communities and local government has shaped her drive to ensure rural and regional communities are empowered to meet the needs of all their residents. Karina founded Projectura out of a desire to work on complex and challenging projects, have more time in her garden (hasn’t happened), and to create the type of communities she would like to live in.

Having grown up in country New South Wales, Karina returned to Corowa NSW a decade ago. When she’s off duty Karina loves to spend time with her two boys and cats (meow) and doesn’t mind a spot of Netflix and crafting.


Kate McRae

Senior Consultant

Kate grew up in the Riverina town of Jerilderie. She believes that rural and regional communities are great places to live and grow up and need to be supported to maintain their unique attributes. Kate has a broad range of work experience which spans the government, private and not for profit sectors. Her drive stems from wanting to see rural places and communities to drive their own future and have equity of access to services and opportunity.

Kate can usually be found either with her head in a book, listening to a podcast, drinking too much coffee, playing with her dog Ziggy at the mighty Murray River or taking a drive around our beautiful countryside.


Brooke Hermans

Senior Consultant

Brooke has over 20 years’ strategic planning, management and community engagement experience in the regional public sector organisations. Her experience has been founded in natural resource and waste management sectors, where she has used her leadership, facilitation, governance and project development skills to support governing boards and community based organisations to set strategy and attract significant investment.

With her roots firmly planted in the small north east Victorian town of Eldorado, Brooke values the natural beauty of regional areas and is passionate about empowering people to share their views and values to influence public decision making.

Consultant
