About me & my work:
My name is Mayu. Born in Tokyo, based in Sydney and often between places on planes, cars, foot, trains and subways.
Story telling is my art and craft. I often work site specifically with communities, and collaborate with creators from all genres. I write plays and blogs; create installations, performances, documentaries and radio programs; produce art projects, oral history programs and seminars; facilitate community workshops and arts projects; take photographs, make video and audio installations; research, interview and assist others to tell their stories.
I like to expand my mind and horizons, swim, listen, play and laugh; endeavour to be receptive and open; listen mindfully and with humility; and would like to be of service for the betterment of humanity and for world peace.
