Associate Dean Indigenous Leadership


Alison Page is a descendant of the Dharawal and Yuin people whose career began in the late 90’s working in architecture and interior design and expanded to urban design, sculpture and film. In 2015 she was inducted into the Design Institute of Australia Hall of Fame and in 2022 was the Interior Design Excellence Awards Gold Medal winner.  

In 2015 Alison co-founded ZAKPAGE with artist and film-maker Nik Lachajczak working across film, sculpture and design to tell stories connected to place. Alison co-creates with Indigenous communities, organisations and cultural practitioners, to bring the power of storytelling to public spaces primarily to awaken the memory of Country. Her work explores traditional knowledges, ceremony, truth-telling and its impact on the Australian identity.
