Dr Keith Armstrong — Experimental Artist, Turrbal and Yuggera Country

Keith Armstrong is an experimental artist profoundly motivated by issues of social and ecological justice. His engaged, participative practices provoke audiences to comprehend, envisage and imagine collective pathways towards sustainable futures. He has specialized for over twenty-three years in collaborative, experimental practices with emphasis upon innovative performance forms, site-specific electronic arts, networked interactive installations, alternative interfaces, art-science collaborations and socially and ecologically engaged practices.

Daniele Constance — Socially Engaged Artist, Kombumerri Country of the Yugambeh Language Region

Daniele Constance is a participatory artist with a focus on social, civic and inclusive arts practices, currently working on the land and water of the Yugambeh Language Region of the Gold Coast, she creates artistic works that draw from direct experience and social arts practices; often using verbatim, documentary, community engages, site-specific and contemporary arts practices. Her work is informed and shaped by community engaged methodologies; and a deep questioning and reorienting of community and ecology; encompassing the complexnatural environments, non-human relationships and dynamics we are inherently a part of. Daniele works with care, transparency and with relationships at the centre of the work.

Donna Davis — Visual Artist, Yuggera + Ugarapul Country

Donna Davis explores the nexus between art and science. She creates new ways of working with ecological concepts and data to develop artworks that capture and create sites of environmental observation. As an artist, she is intrigued with the idea of connection, and works across a range of media including sculpture, installation and digital media to explore connections and relationships with the natural world. She believes that the art/science field provides a powerful catalyst to challenge our discourse, raise environmental awareness and promote conservation of our ecology: by providing new ways of ‘seeing’ and creating new ‘connections’ in the mind of the viewer.
