Medium is the Message

Community Arts Projects have been my work and passion for over 10 years. I have worked as curator, manager and director of a varied mix of creative projects and events, both in Sydney and in Indonesia. As co-founder and arts manager for Komunitas TUK over 4 years, I have learnt a great deal about working with communities, networking and building a strong collaborative spirit and ideology.

Komunitas TUK- Tanam Untuk Kehidupan (‘Planting for Life’) is an Indonesian artist collective based in Salatiga, Central Java that raises environmental awareness in the local community via art and creative practice. TUK runs arts and environmental workshops, creates fantastic recycled products made from trash, runs a reforestation program, an environmental publications program and an annual sustainable art and music festival called Festival Mata Air.
