At present, his work focuses on the contested narratives of Sydney’s and Australia’s urban culture and indigenous history in the face of ongoing colonisation.

Elisapeta Heta is a Senior Associate at architecture firm Jasmax, and is an artist, singer, and member of Ngā Aho, network of Māori design professionals, and ex Co-chair of Architecture+Women NZ. With her collaborator John Miller, she has just been announced as one of the artists for the Biennale of Sydney 2020.
