Nelya Valamanesh | Artist & Producer
Nelya Valamanesh is an Adelaide-based narrative artist, who has developed and produced works on range of different platforms including: producing and hosting NeoVoices on Radio Adelaide, participating in theatre workshops, working on MRC-funded short films, and writing, producing and directing her own short films and music videos.
During her BA in English and Creative Writing, she worked on a postgraduate project which crossed the gap between live performing arts and virtual reality and was chosen to travel to Malaysia as a part of the New Columbo Plan to write poetry and connect with local students. Several of these creative pieces have been published and displayed in exhibitions and university publications.
Nelya’s vision through all her creative avenues has been to speak her truth as a proud queer Persian/Australian woman and to be an ally to many unspoken voices of colour in Australia’s film and theatre industries.
