Region South East Asia & Pacific

I am in my first elected position as InSEA World Councillor, and keen to continue to contribute to this amazing organisation for another round as member of the elected council. I have been working closely with my fellow Australian councillor Dr Kim Snepvangers and colleagues to raise the profile of inSEA to our colleagues as well as develop greater partnerships between our teaching associations across Australia. I know that we have a lot to share with the international InSEA community and I am in a position to do so through my role at the Melbourne Observatory of Arts Education at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I want to continue to develop deeper digital connections, research and praxis resources for InSEA and continue to build a strand member base as I feel that I have only begin in this role and and keen to work more closely with the wider art education community with a further 2 year elected position.
