The Rebus Team is delighted to announce the PROJECT ALCHEMY ARTISTS! Please give a warm welcome to Kelly Sturgiss (Musician/Visual Artist) who will be delivering an artist led bushfire project in Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council.
Kelly has grown up in the Braidwood region and her family has lived on this country since her ancestors convict emancipation. She is passionate about the land and community she is from. After leaving the area to study music and fine art where she combined sound and vision, she returned to raise a child. As well as establishing an artist run exhibition space she has taught music privately and in community workshops.
She has developed an effective method of teaching that includes different ways to approach learning, blending techniques to best suit the individual needs of the student. She encourages students to feel the music and exercise their knowledge and natural expression through improvisation, composition and repertoire. As an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, her broad knowledge allows her to teach and mentor students to read, understand and play music from a beginner through to an advanced level. Kelly currently resides in an old church at Majors Creek.

Project Alchemy is made possible thanks to funding from the Australian Government for the Black Summer Bushfire Grant Program.
