My new picture book RED has just been published by uTales. This is a fresh take on Little Red Riding Hood, where we see the adventurous side of our hero ‘RED’. I hope you like it, and whilst you’re there please give it a star rating. http://utales.com/books/red

Artist . Author . Designer. Artist-in-Residence Asia Culture Center, Korea
Introduction
Dr. Betty Sargeant designs story experiences. She is the current Melbourne Knowledge Fellow, artist-in-residence at the Asia Culture Center Korea, fellow of the International Specialised Skills Institute and artist-in-residence at the Library at the Dock (Melbourne, Australia). In 2016 she was awarded the Consensus Innovation Award.

Her specialities are: concept development, writing, illustration, animation, interaction design, interactive narratives, interactive exhibitions, children's literature and research.

During 2016 Betty was funded to develop her project The Storytelling Machine. This is a media artwork and literary sculpture for an all-ages audience. This project is being run in Korea and Australia and will have its international launch at the ACT Festival, Asia Culture Center, Korea, in November 2016. This work will display animated images and bi-lingual text; it will randomly curate images and text that have been collected from general public workshops. The Storytelling Machine will tour more widely from 2017, thereby expanding the machine's collective story.

Betty is a fellow of the International Specialised Skills Institute. In this role she travelled to Asian cultural centres researching the ways in which they delivered public programs for all-ages audiences; she then compiled a report for the City of Melbourne (2016).

In 2015 Betty was awarded a PhD in Media and Communication (RMIT University). Her PhD work was ranked in the top three of humanities, arts and social science doctoral projects at the 2015 Australian CHASS Prize.

Betty is a previous artistic director of the Melbourne Moomba Parade. This parade is a feature of Australia's largest community arts event.

Her award-winning story app How Far is Up? is available on the App Store: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ogK2UrkStck.

Betty was awarded a 2012 Varuna Writer's House fellowship. Her work has been exhibited in Asia, Europe and the United States.

Betty was born in Melbourne, Australia, where she currently lives and works. Her studio is situated in the Exertion Games Lab at RMIT University.
