Kate Nixon is this year´s Endeavour Award recipient, and we are thrilled to welcome her on the 26th of May!

Kate completed her honours degree at the ANU School of Art in Canberra, Australia, in 2013. Her work is composed of diverse practices, incorporating traditional processes along side new technologies, such as water-jet cutting. In 2015, Kate completed a two-year Associate Programme at the prestigiousJamFactory in Adelaide, Australia.

Alongside conducting her own research, Kate will be a featured artist during the Berlin Design Festival (DMY), and will also spend 2 weeks in August at the Glashütte Gernheim, working with their wonderful team!
