About the participants

Joan Bruce is the Exhibition curator of Entwined: plants and people exhibition and Research Librarian at State Library of Queensland

Donna Davis is a multi-discipline artist intrigued with the idea of connection; her work explores intersections between art and science with a focus on natural and social ecosystems. Often collaborating with ecologists, botanists, and mycologists, she explores new ways to creatively interpret ecological data working across sculpture, assemblage, installation, and digital media to create works that consider imagined futures and provides sites of environmental observation. By providing new ways of 'seeing', Donna aims to challenge ecological discourse and empower stewardship of our fragile ecosystems.

Dr Gill Brown is the Science Leader of the Species and Herbarium Collections group at the Queensland Herbarium. Gill has over 10 years’ experience managing collections and their databases and over 20 years researching the phylogenetic and biogeographic patterns of flowering plants in Australia and South East Asia.
