Made up of artists and industry peers, our Artist Committee plays a crucial role in the development of our Artistic Program by bringing invaluable insights, knowledge, creative perspectives and lived experiences to the selection process.
We look forward to working with Mo, Jemi, Jenna and Roberta to develop the Artistic Program for 2024 - 2025.
Our current open call closes on 6 October 2023.
Mohamed Chamas is an artist, independent game developer and poet based in Naarm (Melbourne). Mohamed’s work holds magickal, spiritual and mystic practices in both friction and synergy to emerging technological phenomena.
jemi gale is an artist. her practice is based in loneliness prevention. she mostly makes paintings and songs with her friends.
Jenna Lee is a Gulumerridjin (Larrakia), Wardaman and KarraJarri Saltwater woman with mixed Japanese, Chinese, Filipino and Anglo-Australian ancestry and uses art to explore and celebrate her many overlapping identities. With a practice focused on materiality and ancestral material culture, Jenna works with notions of the archive, histories of colonial collecting, and settler-colonial books and texts.
Roberta Joy Rich is an educator, curator and multi-disciplinary artist. Her arts practice utilises archives, storytelling, photo-media, text and sometimes satire in her video, sound, installation and mixed media practice. Often referencing her own diaspora southern African identity and experiences, Roberta engages in a process of re-framing materials to unearth silenced narratives and the possibilities they conjure.
