Lady Producer Gang (LPG) is a collective of independent creative producers. LPG is a gang because they’re about disruption, independence and community. Founding members Yasmin Masri, Adelaide Rief and Vanessa Wright are producers of the collaborative kind, viewing creative production as an artistic practice. LPG was established as space to interrogate and invent new models for working, not only for developing and presenting art but also for the structures and systems that sit behind contemporary creative practice.
As a collective LPG want to facilitate conversations about the power and meaning of art, with those who are often excluded from those discussions. Through their work they explore the potential of creativity to disrupt; using social experiments and play to teach us new ways to exist, think and relate to each other in a world facing uncertain futures. For LPG, this type of art is participatory and DIY.
Yasmin is an artist and creative producer who likes art that is participatory, experimental and fun.
Yasmin’s interests in craft and design has led her to work on cultural events including: the DESIGN Canberra festival, the Australian Ceramics Triennale and the London Design Biennale. She has also taught design subjects at the ANU School of Art and the Canberra Institute of Technology. Currently, Yasmin is Creative Producer at Hotel Hotel.
Yasmin is also a co-founder and co-director of Noted - Canberra’s emerging and experimental writers festival.
