Shawn Spina

Shawn has been with CuriousWorks since early 2013, picking up valuable skills and experience on several of our professional and community projects, including Ritual, Riz and Meet+Eat.

He has also been an enthusiastic participant in the Curious Creators’ Writers Group and Film Club.  It was at the writer’s group where he developed the script for his short film, Prone to the Drone.  In 2018, his project was selected for Create NSW Screenability Funding. CuriousWorks produced  Prone to the Drone  with Shawn as its writer and lead performer.

His artistic ambitions stretch from just wanting “to make people enjoy themselves and smile” to exploring his family’s Sicilian background. “I wish I could explore my cultural background a bit more but it is starting to disappear around where I live.”

Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.

Our office is located on Tharawal country. Our work takes us across Tharawal, Dharug and Eora lands. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we work, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
