Sarah McEwan is an artist who lives between Sandigo (Wiradjuri Nation) and Sydney (Eora Nation). She is passionate about 'onto-ethics'; how to make the present world different from the past.
As a musician, Sarah has played drums in bands for over 15 years and toured through Australia, Europe and China, having released music independently and through the labels Half a Cow and Laughing Outlaw.
Sarah is the Creative Producer of the Cad Factory, an artist-led organisation collaborating ethically with people and place to create a local, national and international program of experimental work.
As an advocate for an inclusive art world, Sarah collaborated with Leanne Dyer and Riverina Community College to establish a supported studio in Wagga Wagga that has been running since 2016.
In 2016, Sarah was awarded a Create NSW Regional Fellowship where she undertook residencies at Duke University USA (2017), Womens Center for Creative Work USA (2018) and Bundanon Trust (2018).
