Jack Mitchell

Jack is a designer, artist and researcher whose primary interest lies in relationality and positionality, exploring how people connect somatically to place and story, and where they sit both within their own unfolding story and the context of the collective. Jack carries ancestral stories from Whadjuk, Ballardong and Yued Noongar Boodja, from Contae an Chláir (County Clare) on the west coast of Ireland and the Swedish island of Oland as well as Scotland and England. Jack grew up on unceded Whadjuk Nyoongar Boodjar surrounding the Boorloo wetlands and the Derbarl Yerrigan, but has spent most of his professional life working on Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung land in so-called Melbourne.
