Guen Murroni

Still from Nice To Meet You All 

Guen Murroni’s work – as a member of a direct-action group, fighting cuts to domestic violence services – has played a major role in her creative practice. Murroni is adamant about a holistic approach to activism and healing, creating a space for stories of survivors and seeking justice – from the intimate to the systemic – where we can make the personal political. In Nice To Meet You All, Murroni shows us complexities, even joy and humour at times, rather than defining her subjects by their trauma. Agency is key to Murroni and those whose stories she tells. She believes, inherently, that “a survivor is a person, with a present and a future, not just a past.”
