Amelia Hawk (she/her) is the 2024 Spike Island Engagement Fellow. She is a visual artist creating experiences and conversation as a way to make and share artwork. She is guided by feelings and emotions, exploring what might make her angry, frustrated or empowered. Her work often addresses mental health and socio-political subjects. Hawk combines counselling tools within her practice and workshops to create a safe space for participants. She frames work as an embodied practice of listening.

Recently she undertook ACE funded R&D to research how to integrate counselling strategies into her practice resulting in The Listening Line phoneline, Listening Objects, and other associated works including an emotional coffee van.
