Nadia Odlum is a passionate arts educator, viewing education as both a research tool and an artistic practice. In particular Odlum is interested in the importance of play in contemporary pedagogy, and approaches the creation of educational offerings with a 'process over product' mentality.
In Australia, Odlum has worked as an educator for Parramatta Artists' Studios, the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Kaldor Public Art Projects and the Art Gallery of NSW. This includes creating a large-scale interactive installation and workshop series for Kaldor Public Art Projects in the 'Kaldor Studio', a dedicated education and learning space in the survey exhibition 'Making Art Public: 50 years of Kaldor Public Art Projects' at the Art Gallery of NSW.
Internationally Odlum has worked as an educator at the New York Transit Museum, creating and leading programs exploring the history of public transportation in New York City. Further international experience includes an Education Fellowship at the Wassaic Project in upstate New York in 2018.
