Zoya Godoroja-Prieckaerts / Regional Scribes Facilitator

Zoya Godoroja-Prieckaerts is a practicing Visual Artist and Independent Arts Worker and a first-generation Australian with Russian, Dutch and Canadian roots, based in Mparntwe/Alice Springs.

As an Arts Worker, her mission is to embolden and support others in achieving their goals through methods that are sensitive to their needs, values and capacity. Zoya aims to enable others to reach their potential and operate sustainably. With a focus on community and contemporary arts practices in regional areas, she works with an eclectic range of individuals and groups, from heavy metal music festivals to contemporary experimental dance companies, First Nations social enterprises to local emerging artists.

As an artist with a practice based in drawing, Zoya plays with painting, printmaking, bookmaking, soft sculpture, installation and community engagement. Underpinning her work is a concern with emotion and its capacity to facilitate introspection and change. Informed by personal and collective experiences, she creates intimate anti-patriarchal acts that stimulate contemplation and reflection within both the viewer and herself. Recent highlights include A Portrait of People Caring About Things exhibition at RAFT artspace, It’s a bit tricky to visit each other right now artist book, and her very-slow “fashion label”, god of roger.
