Kate Genevieve Vega

Kate Genevieve Vega is an artist, director, researcher and educator at creative studio chroma.space.

She has staged art and performance work shows nationally and internationally, most recently at Lumens London, Nimes, Brighton Digital Festival, FACT Liverpool, the touring exhibition Technology is Not Neutral and the Flux Lab Geneva in collaboration with the Affective Sciences department at Biotech Geneva.

Vega’s art is grounded in original research into touch and multi-sensory communication through her PHD at the University of Sussex. Embracing the sense that questions of mental, social and environmental ecology do not simply inform each other, but depend on each other, she works with social neuroscience to explore creative imagination and shared experience.

She is passionate about creative culture and ecology centred projects and works with networks focused on creative activism and protecting indigenous wisdom for the Vanuatu based NGO Further Arts and TransArts Alliance.

She is a trained Warm Data Lab facilitator working with open conversations on complexity to activate ecological thinking and wellbeing in communities.
