Sharing Abundance is the brainchild of Juliette Anich who is exploring alternative food systems as part of her PhD at RMIT in Melbourne.
Juliette has a background in design, a Masters in ethical consumer behaviour and decision making. Her academic and project work has developed around mainstreaming and amplifying design solutions to cultural and social environmental problems. Her current projects include Urban Food Maps (currently off line in development land!), Sharing Abundance and Reclaim the Curb.
She teaches design stewardship, accountability, sustainability and marketing at RMIT. This year she launched a new course for design students arming them with the knowledge, communication tools and activism to challenge the current design culture of wastefulness to transform it into one of resourcefulness, innovation and resilience. The student project, The Inevitable Garden, was publicly launched during the semester and continues to receive much attention. Juliette has also taught at universities in Hobart and Newcastle.
In 2011 Juliette was celebrated as one of Melbourne’s top 100 creative, influential and interesting people by The Age. She is now focusing her time on growing Sharing Abundance across Australia.
