Caroline Austin is an Artist and Community Engagement Specialist. Her interdisciplinary participative work and practices speaks to emphasis upon innovative multi-discipline collaborations, programming, site-specific installations, public art and socially engaged practices.
She uses mediums ranging from installations and public sculpture at the School of Visual Arts’ Visual and Critical Studies, New York; International Red Cross; United Nations; Doh Eain, Myanmar and BARI Festival, Brisbane, to exhibitions and various publications such as SINTEZO Magazine.
Her work has taken place in many of the largest crises across Asia Pacific for organisations such as the International Red Cross and United Nations. These roles allowed her to explore how creative practice, creativity and design can be used in community settings to encourage cognitive shifts in audiences that support systems change. Working with collaborators at the Queens University, Kingston, Queensland University of Technology and University of New England, she is focused on generation of new ideas, with the aim of addressing the challenges posed by complex, disruptive events.
