Inna Semetsky Alexandra J. Cutcher
Alexandra J. Cutcher

Alexandra Cutcher is an academic in the School of Education, Southern Cross University, Australia. She comes to her teaching and research as a second-generation migrant woman for whom the Arts were an escape from marginalization and alienation. As a practicing artist she knows well from her own experiences of difference how powerful the Visual Arts can be as a vehicle for transformation, education, inspiration and relief. As a high school Creative Arts Head Teacher for almost thirty years, her experience has informed her practice and made her hyperaware of others who do not feel or look or act as if they belong. In her teaching, it has made Alexandra responsive to and appreciative of uniqueness and it has caused her to consciously and subconsciously cater for individual student need, utilizing curriculum and behaviour modification programs to that end. This hyperaware state has been of great benefit to Alexandra’s teaching and to the learning of her students. She brings this powerful experience to her work in Teacher Education and as such has been recognized for her expertise through perfect student feedback scores and a national teaching award.

Alexandra’s foundational experiences also informed her award-winning doctoral work which specifically examined migrant identity and belonging through the lens of arts-based research. Alexandra’s current research and teaching interests focus on what the Visual Arts can be and do: educationally, expressively, as research method, as language, as catharsis, as reflective instrument and as documented form. To this end, the provision of high quality Visual Arts education for students of all ages is a professional priority. These understandings inform Alexandra’s teaching and her spirited advocacy for Arts education.
