Dr Lisa McDonald - Chair
Dr Lisa McDonald is an interdisciplinary consultant and educator, with a background in cultural research, media, communications, and the arts. She holds a PhD in Cultural Studies from the University of South Australia and has drawn on this field to explore a range of research interests, including the intersection of the arts, humanities, and sciences, and ‘interspecies’, or human-animal relations. Over the past twenty years she has been teaching and researching in related fields in Australian universities and in the VET sector. She has developed a passion for ‘generative’ ways of doing things, or how to think inventively to create cultural change.
She became interested in the discipline of carriage driving a few years ago, and through that, the transformative presence of horses in her life. Her attention is currently focused on:
Dr Kirrilly Thompson - Vice Chair
Peter Oborn - Treasurer
Dr Carol Bradley - Secretary
