Placemaker / Landscape Architect / Community Artist
I have a passion for people, culture and making a difference in my community. I strive to do this in my professional work as a Landscape Architect and through my burgeoning passion as a community artist.
I am the producer of Games Night @ King George Square which invites the community to interact with people of different generations, socio-economic backgrounds and cultures. These interactions break down barriers in society and assist in creating a better Brisbane. Games Night features installations of giant games such as Giant Scrabble, Giant Chinese Checkers, Giant Jenga, the original Giant Brisbane Game and many more.
I am also involved in the promotion of Brisbane PARK(ing) Day, which encourages people, once a year mid-September to create “parks” in car spaces, creating surprising, reclaimed public spaces in unique urban environments.
