Throughout my working life, I have always been fascinated by what motivates and inspires change to create a more just society—in particular through work with communities. In the early 2000s, I was involved with setting up Just and Fair Asylum, an organisation formed to support the work of advocates for refugees kept in indefinite detention.
Since 2016, I have worked on campaigns devoted to change, either in the social and environmental sphere — most recently on campaigns targeting awareness about the environment and the political, where I advise on social media and communications strategies. I have created content for campaigns in Tasmania through my media company Berry Productions and draw on three decades of experience as a television producer and director, which includes making documentaries about serious topics such as autism and eating disorders as well as light entertainment, non fiction and comedy such as Judith Lucy is All Woman. I use my expertise in media to connect content to people beyond the ‘converted’ and aim to create an open dialogue, so people might embrace and act to create change around issues that impact our lives in important and far reaching ways.
