Mika Nishimura is a skilled storyteller and cultural interpreter who is passionate about innovation, arts and education.
Born and raised in Kyoto, a city renowned for its rich artistic culture, Mika grew up with a keen appreciation of traditional Japanese crafts such as the yuzen-zome kimono textiles her grandfather made.
Study in Britain and Australia introduced her to other artistic traditions. She began her film-making career by producing and directing an award-winning documentary about the contemporary Aboriginal artist Lin Onus and many arts programs for SBS TV.
Mika specialises in working with artists and craftspeople to build cross-cultural understanding. She has especially strong links with Australian Indigenous artists and traditional Japanese practitioners, but a hallmark of her work is her ability to find and work with the right people to represent any cultural tradition with integrity and distinction.
