Emerging Cultural Leaders 2015

Aphrodite Feros-Fooke

Aphrodite is a visual artist, currently working with video art, film, projection, projection mapping and installation. In her art practice she is interested in how technology has influenced human-to-human relationships, and human-to-technology relationships. Her works have featured at events such as the Food and Wine Festival, Fringe Festival, Gertrude Street Projection Festival, Channels Video Art Festival and Melbourne Fashion Week.

Her attraction to the Emerging Cultural Leaders program was a desire to learn the skills to organise community events and spaces that enable citizens of Melbourne to have the interest and ability to generate and communicate their own idea of art and creativity.

She has a strong interest in politics and social justice. She would like to produce opportunities to merge creativity and politics to encourage people to question themselves and those around them, to have the ‘difficult’ conversations in environments where people feel safe, and permitted to speak freely.
