She encourages resonance between art forms and expressions that touch everyone, often addressing cultural exchange on ecological, political, and social environments within communities.
She addresses terms of decolonisation through a curatorial framework that crossover practices that embrace intergenerational issues to standing up for the rights of universal cohesion and human equity.
Focusing in body-art installation and site specific performances, Kathleen’s work encourages intercultural community engagement. Her most recent choreographic work called PRIMORDIAL was selected as part of YIRRAMBOI_23, The First Nations Festival in Melbourne
