We have an experienced and passionate team
Creative Curriculum Officer
Blythe joined The Intersection in 2009 (back in Urban Seed days) and as well as being a highly experienced presenter, she also develops our curriculum content and educational approaches (and manages our social media). She loves the profound messages in children’s picture books and exploring difference, diverse community and developing a healthy culture.
Educator & Bookings
In 2015 Mike joined The Intersection (formerly Urban Seed) as an educator and then managing bookings. He brings a life of connecting deeply with others, including young people with mental health challenges, Indian slum dwellers, members of Australian Indigenous communities and others. Challenging young people to make a difference to each other and the world around them is embedded in Mike’s DNA, and he thinks The Intersection is the best job he’s ever had!
Star is a new addition to the Intersection team in 2022.
Lisa’s lived experience of homelessness, domestic violence, AOD and mental health, amongst others, bought Lisa to The Intersection as a Neighbour in 2020. Through this role she came to love the organisation’s values and philosophy as well as the engagement with students. Lisa views this role as a way to turn her negative life experiences into a positive and hopes that by doing so, at least one young person who goes on her walks will never have to stand in her shoes.
Ciara joined the Intersection team in 2023! Ciara is a trained facilitator, educator and organiser who is passionate about The Intersection’s philosophy that social change is made possible through curiosity, discussion, education, empathy and connection. As a history graduate, she believes in the power of storytelling that is rooted in localised histories and knowledge of place to encourage critical thinking and solidarity. Ciara’s approach to discussing social issues is that “we are all doing our best and we can all do better”, acknowledging and empathising with everyone’s lived experience whilst also creating the capacity for change and learning. Her favourite part about working at The Intersection is constantly being surprised and learning from others, especially young people, and hearing new stories about the city every day!
