Amelia Hawk

Amelia is an artist, counsellor-in-training, mother, podcaster, activist and the Artist Caretaker (formerly EOP and Public Programmer) at Eastside Projects. Her work often begins as conversations and materialises as performance, installation, clothing and publications. She is currently exploring connections between art practice and counselling strategies by making new spaces for conversations that aren’t afraid, and are happily political.

Amelia regularly performs and exhibits across the UK and Norway (where she studied her MA at Kunstakademiet in Oslo). Notably, she has exhibited at National Gallery, Prague; Intercultural Museum, Oslo; Helsinki Art Museum, Helsinki; Luda Gallery, St Petersburg; and performed in numerous international festivals such as SPILL Festival, The Festival of Northern Norway, Stockholm Fringe Festival.

She hosts the podcast OTHERWISE SILENT giving a voice to issues and people that are often unheard. In 2020 she began training to be a counsellor. She works three days a week and her salary is £16,800 p/a (£28,000 pro-rata).
