Kelly Lee Hickey

Kelly Lee Hickey was raised on the sweat soaked wetlands outside Darwin and has made her home in the dusty red heartland of Mparntwe/Alice Springs since 2008. An artist and creative producer, her practice explores the intersections between people and places, through collaborative and participatory works including festivals, performance, publication and installation.

Her work has been published and performed in Australia, China, Finland, New Zealand, Indonesia and Germany, with recent projects include Local Knowledge, Vessels for Stories and the Museum of Intimate Memories. Her current work is located within the climate justice movement, and explores place making and creative responses to climate change.

She is currently undertaking a Masters by Creative Research at Victoria University.

Portait Of A White Man (2017) - Artefact of embodied performance process.jpg

Jonny Rowden

Jonny Rowden is a British-born performing artist who relocated to Alice Springs in 2015. His work has spanned theatre, performance art, and performance installation, often using humour, food and soundscapes to create delicate, interactive, and sometimes intimate performance experiences.

Recently, Jonny’s concerns have shifted towards ‘whiteness’ as a racial construct. He has begun to scrutinise and unpick the social, cultural and technological structures that prop up white privilege in the Western cultures. Using writing and semi-improvised performance he reflects the positions, privileges and responsibilities he occupies within this matrix, which will remain an ongoing concern within his artistic practice.

Beth Sometimes

Pakeha artist Beth Sometimes works in diverse arts-based roles, alongside a personal arts practice comprising a multitude of scales and mediums. She usually works socially, also maintaining a practice spanning sculpture, drawing, painting, photography, sound, performance and music. She has been involved in multiple exhibitions, performances, installations and recording projects in addition to publishing comics and books. Beth was the gallery manager of Watch This Space ARI in 2011 and currently sits on the curatorial committee.

From 2016-2018 Beth initiated and produced Apmere angkentye-kenhe with local Arrernte people and Watch This Space, an artist-led social project exploring language, power and place. Beth also works in numerous ways with Pitjantjatjara and Arrernte languages and cusodians as an interpreter, translator and facilitator, including co-teaching Pitjantjatjara and working with NPY Women’s Council as part of the Uti Kulintjaku team.

Beth has recently completed an MFA by research through VCA, Melbourne. She is committed to working in ways which expose or attempt not to replicate the modes of success or shapes of power that continue to oppress various groups, be that via race, class or gender. She embraces artistic practice as a vital method by which to build and reshape communities, construct and challenge identities and rearrange social imaginaries.
