The journey of dancer and filmmaker Emma Watkins commenced at a tender age of three, when she wholeheartedly embraced the world of dance and movement. From ballet and Irish dance to hip-hop, tap, and contemporary dance, Emma’s journey was characterised by a deep-seated love for expression through motion. Her educational path led her to The McDonald College for the Performing Arts, Sydney Film School, ED5 International, and finally, the University of Technology Sydney, where she earned her Master’s in Media Arts and Communication.
Emma’s advocacy for sign language and her unwavering support for Australia’s Deaf community have been constants in her life. Pursuing this commitment, she achieved her Diploma of Auslan (Australian Sign Language) and her Diploma in Interpreting (Auslan) at Deaf Connect. Her scholarly pursuits culminated in a PhD at Macquarie University, Sydney, delving into the artful amalgamation of sign language, dance, and film editing.
Across the span of two decades, Emma has honed her expressive prowess in movement, striving to enhance accessibility for the Deaf community and sign language users through her personal research initiatives.
