Hello my name is Shaun Edwards, I am an Indigenous person of the Kokoberrin peoples from western Cape York Peninsula, Far North Queensland, Australia. I am an artist, creator, promoter and explorer. This means I love new and exciting projects and work best when creating and being artistic.
In 2010 I completed a Master of Philosophy in Public Health at University of Sydney, I also have an Advanced Diploma in Visual Art and several other awards in visual arts and environment, during which time I discovered that art, health and life are all connected. I draw on this connection in my life and working life.
Over the years I've collaborated with some outstanding minds to create and bring to life ideas that are important to people. Ideas that aim to change the hearts and minds of people from around the world. I enjoy pushing the boundaries of ideas, finding solutions and creating opportunities to tell stories using a myriad of resources and technologies.
