JenRae_headshot2017

I am a practice-led researcher in the areas of art + climate/everything change, speculative futures disaster preparedness and food security - based in Narrm (Melbourne). For the past 10 years, my practice has been centred on the role of artists and transdisciplinary collaboration in climate communication and community activation. Since 2016, I've been a core artist of Arts House's REFUGE project where artists, First Nations elders, emergency services, academics and community rehearse climate-induced disaster scenarios.

I am the Director and Creative Lead of Fair Share Fare where art, research, collaboration and cookery collide. We recently launched Fawkner Commons in collaboration with Fawker Food Bowls - a hub for food production, aggregation, distribution and creative food security programs in the north of Moreland.

I am currently working on the PORTAGE: Shelter/Camp project (year 2) with Claire G. Coleman and five intercultural weavers, part of REFUGE, as well as the REFUGE talk series: Preparing for a Pandemic, Living in a Pandemic and Recovering from a Pandemic.
