Katherine Bond is an Education Focused Associate Lecturer in the School of Art and Design, ADA, UNSW, Sydney and practising exhibition and experience designer.
She holds a M.Arts Curatorship from The University of Melbourne and B.Des (Interior Design)(Hons) from RMIT.
Prior research (for her masters degree) explored the intersection of contemporary dance and visual art, in particular spatial activation and choreographic thinking by 'amateur' (non-dance trained) bodies. This research and her experience designing engaging museum environments consolidated an interest in design strategies for playful engagement of adult audiences. Recent projects with the Big Anxiety Research Centre (BARC) coalesce play with health for transformative, pro-social experiences.
Kat teaches experience design at UNSW Art & Design combining spatial expertise, with a detailed understanding of subject, object, time and effect. The discipline explores a range of project types including installations, exhibitions and immersive events as well as their associated experiential dimensions. Previous to UNSW, and founding her own design practice she was the Design Lead for the exhibitions and production team for the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.
