About Tammy Brennan
Tammy Brennan is an artist and agitator who creates and produces contemporary cross-artform works using text, music, movement, performance and site.
Her practice is informed by research that centres on making connections with people that spark innovative exchange and interdisciplinary encounters to provoke dialogue, action, and reflection between community, performer and spectator.
Tammy draws on her own lived experience of sexual violence to interrogate and engage with confronting systemic global socio-political problems.
Her work probes abuses of power, culture and contemporary issues such as human rights violations, gender violence, conflict and trauma.
Shattering ideas around victim and survivor stereotyping, her work directly addresses narrative passivity, representations and reclamation of power to reshape the human condition.
Projects are collaborative involving artists and diverse communities. Roles have included artist, executive and creative producer, community cultural practitioner, arts manager, program director and consultant.
A broad practice that extends nationally and internationally across government, service and arts organisations, community, festivals, and universities in metropolitan, regional and remote areas.
