Poet and writer
Reneé has a doctorate in Media, Creative Arts and Social Inquiry, which drew on three years of experience with asylum seekers in detention, while working as a school teacher. More recently, she has witnessed environmental destruction and its corollary, environmentalism, including the Roe 8 campaign. Since moving to Denmark, Reneé has connected with Noongar Elders and their stories, colonial history and the plight of Country. Her poetry and writing bear witness to these experiences.
Art, poetry and their place in an ancient landscape
Bill Bunbury OAM speaks to artist NIKKI GREEN and poet RENEÉ PETTITT-SCHIPP about their award-winning imagery and words and how they engage us with both the region’s ancient landscapes and the challenge of managing human impacts. Their works also reflect respect for the land’s Noongar Custodians.
