About the Creative in Residence

The Creative in Residence (CIR) Program enables students and teachers to access the curriculum and showcase learning through the arts (creative arts and humanities) via a dedicated and specialist practitioner that is current and active in their field of practice.

Ainslie School’s current creative in residence, since 2019, is practising visual artist Dr Naomi Zouwer. Naomi has expertise with creative processes and design to improve engagement, collaboration, and learning. Naomi enjoys working on projects with research and cultural institutions, and a wide range of educational organisations (from pre-school to tertiary) in Australia and Finland. Naomi’s projects are designed for (and with) children, teachers, researchers and communities.

Naomi’s approach is grounded in practice-based research, which includes a PhD at the Australian National University, as well as over 20 years in the arts education and museum sectors. Naomi also holds a Graduate Diploma in Education and BA (Visual Arts).
