The Rebus Team is delighted to announce the PROJECT ALCHEMY ARTISTS! Please give a warm welcome to Mica Mahani (Artist/Dancer/Theatre Practitioner) who will be delivering an artist led bushfire project in Bega Valley Shire.
Mica Mahani is an artist and creative arts facilitator with a focus on social justice and the environment. Born and raised in the Bega Valley, she has been making art in various forms since she was a child, with roots in the theatrical Candelo Arts Society of the 1980s and 90s. Mica has travelled, studied and performed in many locations around the world, and is now comfortably making art as she feels is needed for herself, community and planet.
Since 2008 she has been primarily creating projects in movement and dance, but also including visual arts, textiles, and drama. Her work encourages participation over perfection and engages many unlikely performers to create unique and memorable works, often in collaboration with other artists and community groups. Mica and her partner have recently taken over defunct yet iconic Bega takeaway store, transforming it into a creative arts space where all sorts of magic happens.

Project Alchemy is made possible thanks to funding from the Australian Government for the Black Summer Bushfire Grant Program.
Rebus is also supported by Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres and the ACT Government.
