A large part of Rose's work includes facilitating and working on community arts projects. Rose is interested in bringing out the extraordinary aspects of apparently ordinary people. She loves the idea that people's bodies are full of stories - the older the body, the more stories are stored. No one has a boring life story to tell!
Recently, Rose has mostly been working with elderly community members on projects that feature recorded interviews. Rose has the ability to connect with the elders and encourage such an entertaining collection of stories to be shared. She chooses themes for each project which have included rebellion (for Ballarat, the city of rebellion!), times in their lives when their heart was beating fast, the role of music in people's lives and in a project in Euroa last year, the questions were devised by a group of high school students. They included questions on reincarnation, singing in the shower and their (rather personal) first kiss!
Rose regularly collaborates with other professional artists to ensure a high quality result. These have included choreographers Martin del Amo and Michelle Heaven, visual artist Mars Drum and video maker Denis Beaubois.
