Rebecca Conroy is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher working across site, community engagement, and performative interventions through artist led activity. Her work is bound up in mimetic strategies and the playful occupation of non-art fields such as urban planning, economics, and housing, particularly where it concerns the behaviour of cities and the rise of the creative entrepreneur within finance capitalism. She has previously worked in the role of Festival Director (Gang Festival), Associate Director (Performance Space), Provocateur (Splendid Arts Lab, Artist Wants a Life, Strange Attractor and Critical Path), and has been the co-founder and co-director of two artist run spaces in Sydney, The Wedding Circle and Bill+George. From 2011 – 2014 she was conductor of The Yurt Empire, a rogue housing project and encounter in the inner city of Sydney. Her current work includes the Marrickville School of Economics, an artist-led pedagogy and experiment in doing economy differently.
