Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.

Dan creates unusual arts experiences that provoke wonder and conversation about humanity, towards social change. She is multi-disciplinary; drawing on participatory installation, live art, puppetry, public art, social practice and visual theatre. She joined Polyglot in 2016 and has been lucky to work with children, families and artists all over the world.

Dan enjoys playful, challenging and moving installations that gently subvert recognised rules of the public arena. She actively pursues flipping child/adult dynamics in public space, proposing elevation of the child’s status, visibility and creative decision making. She investigates the world by exploring alternative narratives of people and place, beyond the obvious or expected.

Dan is co-founder of Hello Togetherness with Alex Desebrock (WA) making big thinking arts experiences for households to do together at home and make connections to their neighbours. She received her Masters of Art in Public Space at RMIT (2018), graduating on the Vice Chancellors Awards List.
