Adele, a person of colour, has worked in arts, human rights and social justice for many years as a senior executive. Having worked in leadership development, human rights, women’s health, and family and domestic violence, Adele is commencing a PhD. The PhD on domestic and family violence expands upon their Master of Human Rights dissertation.

As a writer, artist, consultant, speaker, and facilitator, Adele brings a deep commitment to amplifying the voices and stories which are often excluded or suppressed. There are no voiceless, there are those who are being silenced or excluded. Adele uses storytelling in non-fiction, poetry and performance writing to explore identity, the politics of existence, and the ways in which we integrate personal and shared histories.
Adele is often found on a random new adventure or revisiting favourites such as rock climbing and trail running. With gratitude and respect to Elders past, present, and future, Adele currently lives on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja.
