Joy Denise Scott

Vice Chair

As an interdisciplinary artist drawing on poetry and improvisational embroidery to describe emotional responses, and their trigger effects on lived experience, I am exploring the question as to where am I in the scheme of things? My practice takes its cue from feminist scholar Sarah Ahmed, as to how our feelings are wrapped up with how we co-exist with others and why this matters.

Deidre Robb

Membership Chair

I am a Mandurah-based artist investigating meaningful stories, experiences and causes. These range from the deeply personal through to universal social and environmental issues.

My previous working life was a patchwork of roles in the literary, GLAM, contemporary craft, and community development sectors in Aotearoa New Zealand, UK and Australia.
