Drika Horton is a living systems artist, mother and educator with a background in fine arts/sculpture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, permaculture and the healing arts. She is a host and faculty member for Australia’s The Regenerative Practitioner series, nested on the traditional lands of the Boonwurrung people. Drika’s visual arts practice transitioned early on, from art-making to designing for Life. For the past two decades, she has focussed on creating the energetic conditions for Life to heal itself; exploring birth and earth-based practices, cross-disciplinary collaboration, and working nodally to address socio-ecological issues.
Learning from the wisdom of Aboriginal Australia, her relationship with Country, own woven ancestry and young children continue to be Drika’s greatest teachers for how to be a human being in reciprocity with the nested systems, essence and spirit of place. As a designer and resource through Regenerative Development practices and technologies, Drika is in service to helping unveil authentic expression, perceive greater creative palettes and sources of healing for individuals, communities, their places and projects.
Time zone considerations: Drika is based in Melbourne, Australia.
