Suitable for all levels. No painting experience necessary.

WHEN: Saturday 14 March, 12pm – 3pm

ABOUT THE TUTOR


Jessica Ibacache is an artist, writer and curator based in Melbourne. An underlying theme through her work is the commitment
to breaking down barriers of access to the arts.

Inspired by her Chilean heritage and family’s migration story, her art and writing explores the complexities of Latinx culture including connection to community and familial ties, and the migrant experience and diaspora identity.

She has curated exhibitions at Footscray Community Arts Centre, VU at MetroWest and Loop Project Space, and produced creative events at Emerging Writers Festival and One Night in Footscray. Jessica is the co-founder of Yo Soy – a Melbourne-based collective for Latinx creatives.
