Tammy Wong Hulbert

With a twenty-five-year history of art and social justice practice in Australia and Canada, Marnie’s research sits at the intersection of socially engaged art, community-based methodologies, and the politics of cultural measurement.

Ai Yamamoto (sound)
Ai was born in Japan and has lived in Melbourne, Australia since the early 2000s. Her music practice comes with sonic exploration and melodies. She sources her sounds from field recordings, game sounds, and daily life in the world. She manipulates these textures into a body of work influenced by soundscapes, ambient, and industrial music. Her concept of works is about time and place, and she treats her works as her sound diary. She has worked with a range of sound artists, video artists and contemporary dance performers such as Lawrence English, Dan West, Zake, Yumi Umiumare, Sofi Basseghi, Jeanette Hoe, Ben Frost, Antuong Nguyen, and others.
George Akl (photography)
George is an emerging interdisciplinary artist from Naarm (Melbourne) of West Asian (Middle Eastern) descent. His work has strong foundations in video, photography and activism and is largely situated in socio-political contexts. George is interested in the potentiality and intervention of episodic film spectatorship to question implicit and prosthetic memories and values. George has worked alongside internationally acclaimed artists like Magdalena Jetelova and Fred Schepisi. His art has played instrumental roles toward social and political change in the Environmental and Anti-Genocide movements and he has been awarded significant grants and scholarships for his interdisciplinary practice.
