The Artist as Driver

The Artist as Driver is a two-year self-directed residency focused on research and reflection on the topics of leadership, governance, and advocacy through the lens of an independent artist. A response to Jamie’s challenges as an independent artist, and the quickly changing climate of arts and culture in Australia, the project asks, “What would leadership, governance, and advocacy look like if it were artists who led the conversation?” and “How can artists continue to lead these conversations?” Through the residency, Jamie develops her advocacy position and a model in which she can develop as a leader, and extend her advocacy role through her artistic practice.
