As a storyteller and community builder, Arielle aims to harness the powers of creativity and collaboration to create meaningful change. As Groundswell Director, Arielle is passionate about bringing new people and communities into climate conversations, and empowering them to get active in supporting climate justice and climate solutions.
Prior to Groundswell, Arielle co-founded and curated a group exhibition with some of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, All We Can’t See: Illustrating the Nauru Files. This national exhibition and impact campaign shed light on the unacceptable human cost of offshore detention, touring Australia in 2018 to raise funds for legal and advocacy support for asylum seekers and refugees.
Arielle’s former career was as an award winning book designer and illustrator, and she maintains an art practice in embroidery and tapestry.
