Lizzie Rose is the co-founder of Rumpus, a creative social enterprise based in the Illawarra region that uses purposeful play, art and creativity as a tool to unlock, build and strengthen communities and workplaces.
Rumpus has engaged hundreds of emerging creatives over the past 6 years to share their craft, artform and artistry through introductury, fun skillshare classes, and thousands of community members have learnt from painters, ceramicists, musicians, writers, illustrators, textile artists, sculptors, craft artists and designers.
This year, Rumpus launched MakeShift, a ‘creativity on prescription’ initiative that brings people face to face with a range of creative practices and art forms proven to help with managing anxiety, depression, PTSD and general mental health, through workshops, courses and talks.
Lizzie is passionate about working with people in a way that creates community connection for the benefit of individual health and wellbeing. She has worked with community for over two decades in the field of environmental sustainability, arts and cultural development. Her dedication to social change and commitment to building sustainable, resourceful and connected communities has defined her work and life.
