Carla Davey is a visual artist and dancer. She was born with Down Syndrome and has a mild intellectual disability. Carla is a dancer with integrated dance company SPRUNG!! Most recently she has been exploring the concept of self and place through her visual arts practice. Her first mini exhibition “I AM” was a reflection of her role as artist in community. Carla was a performer in The Overtopping, a multi arts performance commissioned for ARTSTATE 2017 and based on the stories of recovery and resilience of the Northern Rivers community after the 2017 Lismore Flood.
Carla is passionate in how making art can help people . She is extending her own practice to co facilitate a number of workshops in 2019 that will work with women carers to creatively investigate and deliver a framework for health, well being and social change ” Art is good for you, just do it!”
