Linda Lee

SLC Director


(Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Huia, Ngāti Kuri,Te Aupōuri, Te Rarawa)

Creative Director of Shared Lines Collaborative, producer of Ōtari Raranga Weavers and co-producer of Urban Dream Brokerage.

Linda is an artist, kairaranga, arts producer and educator based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Aotearoa, New Zealand. She holds an MFA in Photography (University of Canterbury) and Graduate Diploma in Event Management and Teaching. She has taught in NZ and abroad at tertiary and secondary levels.

​Linda discovered she was whāngai at age 19 and as a mixed-race artist - Māori, Chinese, Pākehā, Dalmatian/Croatian, this led her to explore identity, researching and reinterpreting family, whakapapa, and further indigenous histories through exhibition, installation, photography, and book form. Continued study around mātauranga Māori, raranga, rongoā, and te reo Māori, as well as disaster management, are woven into her years of practice. 

Her developing interest in indigenous art forms reconnects to her heritage and develops a means of non-verbal communication when working in spaces with language barriers.
