David Freedom Rose
David Freedom Rose was born in Doncaster, Yorkshire, England in 1959 and emigrated to Australia as a 10 yr old child with his family. He is the Founding & Co-Ordinating Artist of the wikimoma.art community arts project. Rose has long worked in the community arts, starting in 1973 at the age of 14 when he organized the village kids to come together to put on a show at the Stoneville Hall outside of Perth, Western Australia. They raised $25 (which was a lot of money back then) - the money was donated to the local branch of the Red Cross.
Formerly, Rose has described himself variously as an Inter-disciplinary Arts Practitioner, a Community Arts Worker, a Therapeutic Artist and a New Media Artist... equally - a bodger, tinker, faffa, jack-of-all-trades-master-of-(mmmm... really?)-none.
