Asuka Hara

Hello! My name is Asuka and I’m a Creative Arts Therapist at KidsXpress. Playfulness, presence and curiosity are at the heart of everything I do.

After completing my MA in Therapeutic Arts Practice at MIECAT in 2013, I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside and support children and teens in many settings including schools, place-based initiatives, outreach and even the bush! I love the power and possibility the creative arts offer us to explore, express, understand, empower, connect and heal as individuals and communities. Working with the amazing team at KidsXpress in this way, is a dream come true.

Getting lost in new places and soaking up different cultures is my ultimate fun! I also love my volunteer role as an arts-based researcher, dancing, wandering in nature and playing and relaxing with loved ones.
