art in the world

Alisa's arts practice travels well beyond the studio walls, venturing into remote landscapes, connecting with natural environments and local communities. Alisa has participated in residencies in Japan and Finland, as well as conducting workshops and discussion groups throughout Australia and parts of Europe. 

A significant part of Alisa’s arts practise is dedicated to working closely with communities on creative projects. Alisa has been coordinating the Arts and Wellbeing Program at Ballarat Community Health since 2014, utilising visual art, music and drama to offer creative outlets and alternative forms of communication. Working with various community groups including migrant and refugee families, people with disabilities and those living with mental health issues, Alisa instigates projects that focus on telling stories, sharing experiences and promoting confidence.
