Kira Bayfield, Manager
Kira is currently studying Social Enterprise and Sociology at Griffith University. She has recently hit the ground running at Jugglers, bringing with her a wealth of good vibes, lunchtime snacks, and vast knowledge from her events management, administration and marketing experience.
Kira’s passions are human rights and creativity.
With a love for (and obsession with) music and her cat, you can easily picture how she spends her weekends. Her current hobby is Hip Hop dance classes as she tries to convert her kitchen moves to actual grooves. She hasn't been successful, yet…
Alex Freitas, Bar Assistant
Alex likes to talk. A lot. He’s all about sharing ideas and discoveries. And he’s always discovering something. Spotting puns in casual conversations. Drawing abstract patterns. Playing rock and roll songs in bossa nova style. He likes entertaining people. Mainly because he pleases himself with other peoples joy. It’s kind of a “selfish altruism”. He thinks it’s a win-win situation.
Also he is Neo’s dad. Neo is a very awesome little person. At this stage a majority of Alex's artistic work is parenting performances. But he also draws, paints, sculpts. And makes some funny time-lapses.
You should go check his art. Now!
Bohdi Gardener, EADP Facilitator
Bohdi is a jack of all everything, and can fall under a lot of categories. But to make it as simple as possible just call him an artist.
Eight years of visual/fine arts study coupled with varied trade experience during the same time period shows in his approach to all matters. Known mostly for his mural work and as a competent drawer bohdi likes to work large and fast tailoring his style to execution instead of time strain.
This artist focuses all conceptual matter in his work towards social issues and matters of the body and human experience. And is consistently active towards these issues and his own development in these areas at all times.
Practical, conscious, Productive. ;)
Kat Donald, Intern
I am a visual artist who is mainly interested in analogue collage and film photorgaphy. My works often show themes of nature and femininity and been displayed in cafes, shops and galleries around Brisbane as well as in online zines.
I am very passionate about bringing the community together through the use of art as a platform to express and communicate the positive and negative aspects of our society as well as individual lives.
Jasmine Price, Intern
I am Jazz, a third-year student studying a Bachelor of Fine Art at QCA. My major is Interdisciplinary Print Media. I love being in the studio making a mess printing several copies of a lino-cut I carved.
My role at Jugglers so far has revolved around web-design, I've done a pretty fantastical job wouldn't you agree?
