Jessie French

Jessie French is an experienced creative producer, strategist and curator with a background in public programs. Since 2018, Jessie and co-conspiritor Helen Marcou AM have worked with pop culture academic Dr Catherine Strong and ethicist Dr Emma Rush to develop and deliver a series of talk workshop sessions titled ‘Hypotheticals: A moral dilemma’, inspired by Geoffrey Robinson’s Hypotheticals in format. During these sessions, participants work through fictitious scenarios in real life, applying ethics to come to their own conclusions and solutions. To date, conversations have been informed, respectful, nuanced and deep – providing industry practitioners access to an array of perspectives to enable practice in applying ethics to relevant and challenging contexts.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
