Cam Michael

Artist-In-Residence (ACT)

2022 – 2023

Cam Michael is an emerging mixed media artist based on Ngunnawal country (Canberra). Having begun his relationship with glass in classes at Canberra Glassworks as part of Belconnen Arts Centre’s Ignite program, Cam has built an ongoing mentorship with Luna Ryan in the practice of cast glass. In the last three years, Cam has been commissioned by the Australia Council for the Arts, completed a diploma of Visual Arts and exhibited in Craft ACT and Belconnon Arts Centre.

Cam’s work is broadly informed through his experiences with disability and identifying as LGBTI+.”Things that are not always visible or seen as valuable by others in society.” As a result he has been interested in the value of the perspective of ‘other’ and the benefits of social inclusion and new perspectives.
