Working on Awabakal, Gadigal and Dharawal lands
Anna describes herself as a “social systems masseuse”, spending her time imagining and implementing preferred futures by listening carefully, imagining differently and synthesising complexity. She is a talented visual communicator, having completed a Master of Design through UNSW focusing on speculative futures, design functions and contemporary art.
Before joining TACSI, Anna was Lead Experience Designer and in-house artist at WILDWON, Australia’s first ‘meaningful experience agency’, and prior to that she inhabited the fantastical world of fashion design.
Endlessly creative and passionate about getting to the heart of things, Anna loves that her role at TACSI gives her the opportunity to tinker with “the way things are” and affect a visible change in reality. Her hope is to give people a greater voice in the systems impacting their lives.
Anna is currently working with TACSI on scaling Family by Family, an award-winning peer-to-peer support program that pairs families who need support with families who can provide support. During the Covid lockdowns, she had the opportunity to work with families to co-design and implement a new remote peer-to-peer DV support service called The Virtual Village.
When she isn’t at TACSI, Anna makes music in a post-punk band, loves going camping, and spends time drawing, painting and making things.
