I'm a poet and a radio/sound artist from Aotearoa who makes work exploring species extinction, sound and silence, and the environmental hauntologies of the Capitalocene/Necrocene. I also work as a curator of sound and radio art events and projects for the international radio art network Radia and other contexts. My day job is as a lecturer (currently at Deakin University: Modernist Literature, Media Ecologies; and Melbourne Polytechnic in the Masters of Creative Industries Programme, focusing on artist economies, and more practical aspects of artists' everyday-life sustainability, such as grant writing.)
An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.
