About Lisa Kennedy
Lisa Kennedy is a descendant of the Trawlwoolway People on the northeast coast of Tasmania. Lisa was born in Melbourne and, as a child, lived close to the Maribyrnong River. Here she experienced the gradual restoration of the natural river environment alongside cultural regeneration and reclamation. Through the sense of place, she feels connected to the Wurundjeri country, and all that entails. The experience of loss and reclamation is embedded in her work.
