Louise Kate Anderson is a conceptual artist, curator, arts worker and future leader in the arts and disability sector. She is currently Vice-President of the artist-run-initiative the Big Fag Press, as well as undertaking a Master in Curating and Cultural Leadership at Art & Design UNSW and employed part time at Accessible Arts. Her creative practice crosses many disciplines and is primarily political or activist in nature, and aims to raise awareness of a variety of social and ethical questions.
Lou's goal is to promote the grass-roots / artist-run-initiative wing of the art world as inherently the perfect environment for people who experience disability or other disadvantage, which she has personally experienced. Furthermore she believes that through on-going collaborative project work across all abilities, access initiatives themselves such as audio description will come to be valued and celebrated as genuine, necessary features of the art experience.
For Runway Australian Experimental Art, Lou was on the Management Board as an Office Bearer (Secretary) from 2013-2015. She also managed the social media coordination and our archive issues.
Louise was born in Sydney and has lived and studied in France. She holds a Bachelor of Design (honours) and a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies.
