Renee is a writer who is exploring many ways of telling stories, including plays, short stories, poetry (which she also performs), and cross-genre collaborations with composers, musicians, sculptors and filmmakers. She's passionate about the emerging artist community and most of her projects involve community building and collaboration. She's also looking for ways to build bridges between her first love, medicine, and her best friend, the arts.
Renee has written and toured three plays, Lantern, The First Asian AB (FAAB) and The Bone Feeder. She is the author of four chapbooks of poetry and has had work published in numerous other books, journals and zines. Currently she is involved with arts collaboration project Metonymy and Asian arts showcase Funky Oriental Beats. She is the organiser of Auckland Council-commissioned workshop series, New Kiwi Women Write.
I like the idea of creative karma - be generous with your creativity in helping others and it will come back to you. All my community building has a rather selfish purpose - it strengthens my "industry" and ensures that the next time I am looking around for great 'can-do' people to collaborate with, they'll be there.
