I acknowledge, pay respect, and pay the rent to the Traditional Custodians and their Ancestors of the lands on which I live: the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. I pay my respects to their Elders, past and present, as well as to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Sovereignty was never ceded and colonial violence continues across so-called Australia to this day. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
Jacina Leong 梁玉明 is an artist-curator, educator and researcher of Chinese and Italian heritage, based on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country in Narrm (Melbourne).

With fourteen years experience working with children and young people, school and university students, emerging and established artists, creative and cultural producers, researchers and educators, Jacina is committed to the role that arts organisations can play in bringing people together to explore and respond to overlapping crises and precarious futures. This commitment has been shaped by professional experiences working with and across art museums and regional galleries, universities and schools, local councils, arts festivals and libraries.

Her transdisciplinary and collaborative practice has taken shape as workshops and curatorial encounters, pedagogical experiments and performances, community events, conversations and texts, and research projects.

Jacina is currently completing her PhD with a focus on care and (post-representational) curatorial practice.
