Mike Field - CEO

My focus at White Elephant Trust is on strengthening the trust by interacting and collaborating with stakeholders and community partners. I love creating order from chaos – restoring, reshaping and relaunching.

I’m a husband, father, immigrant, snowboarder, DJ, and a total nerd. And I feel really lucky to be part of positive change in the lives of Christchurch’s young people.


Sarah Kelleher - Communications Manager

My role at White Elephant Trust is all about getting the word out there that we are an exciting place for young people to do cool stuff. I sprinkle emojis on our Facebook and Instagram account and run the White Elephant website.  I also enable programmes to happen, so if you’re keen to get something up and running at White Elephant, I’m the person to chat to.

I’m also an audio engineer and lecturer, and have worked at a range of institutions in NZ and the UK such as University of Canterbury, Yoobee School of Design, MAINZ and the School of Audio Engineering.
