Alex Walker is a youth arts practitioner making live art with a cross-section of young people at the point where the spheres of children, arts, culture, and politics intersect. Alex works across contexts, heavily invested in carving out a place for the voice and position of the young person to have an impact on their environment and community.
Alex has held key artistic roles at St Martins Youth Arts Centre (2012-2015), Outback Theatre for Young People (2010-2012) and Australian Theatre for Young People (2007-2009). In her roles to date, she has prepared young people to perform and participate as part of Melbourne Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival, The Wheeler Centre, Arts Centre Melbourne, NGV, MPavilion, State Library Victoria, Testing Grounds, ArtsHouse, Theatreworks, Dark Mofo, Ten Days on the Island, Castlemaine Festival and Melbourne Town Hall. She has presented at State, National and International conferences dedicated to young people and the arts.
In 2016 Alex founded House of Muchness (HoM). Muchness is your you-ness, your oomph, your grit and substance, your core character, your spark, your bestness, the fullest version of you. House of Muchness is a centre for creativity with young people. Workshops and projects for 5 to 17 year olds happen within an inclusive culture of creative risk-taking and artistic experimentation. Arts processes are used to arrive at new material which reveals the contemporary condition of young people and their complex relationship with the world. HoM is an environment where young people can belong to a collective and build social relatedness, artistic expression and find their creative kin.
