Bridget believes in a truly connected sustainably creative community. Her independent practice, advocacy work, exhibitions, support of other makers and community projects are unified by this vision.
Creativity and its potential to express ourselves, connect with each other, to question, challenge and find new answers is very powerful. Why is that so? Because this results in an abundant place for future generations. A world where we create less but reap more. A place where surplus is felt through connection, and a time where life is explored using creativity and creative thinking.
Bridget’s professional practice is broad. It encompasses jewellery design, installation and conceptual art. She is also the Director of The Project Space and you can often find her running community-based projects and workshops.
Bridget is one of the founding members of The Repair Cafe Sydney North, 164 Longueville Rd Lane Cove. She is usually there on the first Sunday of the month to repair jewellery for free.
Furthermore, Bridget loves gardening and is passionate about permaculture and growing edible plants in the urban environment. She completed a Permaculture Design Certificate in 2013. She then developed a sustainable permaculture garden at home and on her verge for neighbours to share. In 2018, the garden was awarded first prize in the Edible Garden category of the Lane Cove Council Garden competition. In 2020 the garden was filmed for ABC’s TV program Gardening Australia.
The Project Space is open Thursday 11-5pm, Saturday 9-1pm, and by chance and prior appointment.
