Hi, I’m Rosa.
I’m excited to run as your Greens candidate for Barker because I understand the importance and power of community – something that is currently lacking in federal Parliament.
I’m a community-minded artist who lives in regional South Australia. I’ve experienced firsthand many issues that face regional areas and I know that politicians need to engage with these communities directly, rather than relying on secondary research.
In recent years, I’ve worked tirelessly as a Healthy Rivers Ambassador and River Fellow to help save our precious Murray Darling Basin. I’m also passionate about improving rural services, such as domestic violence and substance abuse treatment facilities, and I have been an advocate for quality regional aged care and mental health services.
With a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Visual Culture and a Master of Cross Disciplinary Art and Design, I’ve also pursued a successful career as a statement-based visual artist, selling artwork internationally and organising many exhibitions across South Australia.
I’m highly skilled in unifying and engaging with different communities. Using this ability, I hope to raise the quality of life for regional communities and protect the country’s land and water.
