Marnie is Senior Research Fellow at the School of Art and acting leader for CAST (contemporary art and social transformation) research group at RMIT University in Naarm (Melbourne), Australia.www.marniebadham.com.
With a twenty-five-year history of art and social justice in Australia and Canada, Marnie's research sits at the intersection of socially-engaged art practices, participatory methodologies and the politics of cultural measurement.
Through aesthetic forms of encounter and exchange, her work brings together disparate groups of people in dialogue to examine and affect local issues.
Her current focus includes a series of creative cartographies registering emotions in public space; expanded curation projects on the aesthetics and politics of food; and a book project The Social Life of Artist Residencies: connecting with people and place not your own.
