My name is Jess Harrison, she/her pronouns, and I live and work on unceded Gadigal and Wangal Country. I am currently in my 5th year of an Arts/Fine Arts degree, I am a queer Jewish woman and a proud member of my union.
The Art and Design school is a unique and dynamic space at UNSW. Student leadership has worked tirelessly to hold management accountable to our values of inclusion and justice especially in relation to; First Nations programs and staff, mental health, climate action and affordability. I hope to apply my skills as a Community Organiser to continue this work and empower more students to tell their stories and realise their power to act.
With UNSW’s march to privatisation and the impacts of coronavirus it is more important than ever for us to step up and demand a seat at the table. I’m nominating for Engagement Officer because I believe in our collective power to create a better future.
