Georgia Hayward is an emerging contemporary artist based in Meanjin/Brisbane whose practice explores contemporaneous sociology, human connection and the subsequent role of community consciousness. Working across an array of disciplines including text-based art, photography and installation, her practice philosophically contemplates the role of relationships as a fundamental aspects of the human condition. 

Her works are imbued with vulnerability and intimacy as she draws on her personal histories and the contributions of her wider communities through participatory engagements. Georgia’s conceptually powerful and emotive works aim to expand a shared consciousness to encourage greater social connection and empathetic understanding.
