research-creation and participatory development innovations
I am an interdisciplinary researcher and development practitioner renowned for my capacity to connect unexpected partners on unprecedented projects to mobilise impact. Through research-creation and participatory development innovations, I work at the intersection of community and network building, decolonisation, spaces of experimental learning and co-creation, and social innovation to unleash a new kind of networked agency. A creative changemaker, I’m guided by the principles of inclusion, possibility and solidarity to “engage with difference that makes a difference to what was initially thought,” (Bhambra).
With fifteen years experience in communities and organisations across Australia, North America, Asia, the Middle East & North Africa, and Europe; recent projects include research and content for Diversity Arts Australia’s Creative Equity Toolkit, and co-editing a Special Issue on decolonial interventions with the Journal of International Women’s Studies. Other collaborations span the United Nations Development Program’s Knowledge and Innovation Unit, SenseLab, Concordia University, the European Commission’s DG Research and DG CONNECT, NESTA, The School of Making Thinking, City of Montreal, Australia Council for the Arts, University College London, Design Studio for Social Intervention and the Museum of Contemporary Art among others.
A Fellow from the Centre for Sustainability Leadership, I am also currently a member of the Division for Peace’s Learning Solutions consultant pool at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research.
