Anna has previously held tenured research leadership and teaching roles at The University of Sydney, Goldsmiths (UK), and Monash.

Anna will talk about her fieldwork with adults, children and their broader communities on the research themes of belonging, home, heritage and journey through the various methods of socially engaged arts practices, focus groups and interviews. Anna’s research considers the act of working with fabric as a social research method and texture as a form of non-verbal communication.
