it's a peach, it's at the jam factory, it is not a hairy butt with a twig in it. Honest.

Deborah Hughes is living parts and wholes, #regional fashionista, multidisciplinary artist and theatre maker in rural South Australia.

Deb is visiting Australia from Great Kiwi Land. She currently lives in regional South Australia with most of her immediate family. She is a secondary school science teacher, former adventure guide, and ex Company Manger of D’faces, Whyalla’s multidisciplinary youth arts facility. Currently she is the Arts and Cultural Facilitator at the Whyalla City Council in partnership with Country Arts SA. Deb is also Living Parts and Wholes, an artistic practice that is really an indulgence of all she finds interesting. @livingpartsandwholes  She continues her involvement with D’faces as an active board member and drama facilitator.  

She has a strong commitment to the transformative power of creative engagement, the importance of creativity to our young people’s lives, future and current economy and just generally because it makes the world a better and more interesting place to be.

She has managed multiple youth projects and community engagements from public art works to pop up events and exhibitions, workshops and theatre. She is currently working on several small public art interactions and a two person theatre work with her daughter ‘Advice from MY Mother’, based on two years of messenger exchanges as her daughter navigates adulthood.
