curatorial and community

Exhibitions I have curated:

Art That Moves, Workshop Arts Centre, March 2015, 2016 and 2017
Art That Moves is an evening of performance art. It's not just the art that moves; the audience is also obliged to move through the unique studios of the Workshop Arts Centre, each with their own special ambiance, to experience the different acts.

Community Project:

The Sofa Project, Auburn Community Centre
Every two weeks when the Community Kitchen is on at the Auburn Community Centre, asylum seekers from Iran, Burma, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and many other countries join together to upholster a sofa that will belong to the community. We're doing it stitch by stitch, led by Syeed, an Iranian master craftsman. We don't always understand each other, but we have a great time! This is a community project in conjunction with Settlement Services International.
