Niv is a socially engaged artist working across mediums like video, performance, education and sound. She is currently thinking about the intersections of self-awareness, traditional wisdom, ecological care, queerness and collective resilience as modes to help heal the land (and all that it holds). 


Her practice centers around creating art as a social form, producing collaborative relationships and experiences of togetherness (with humans and non-humans alike).


She facilitates workshops on traditional medicine, mindful embodiment, deep listening and art-making for all ages (kids, teens, young adults and adults) - guiding on more resilient and attuned ways of being. Her workshops are built upon the foundations of inclusivity, reciprocal care, compassion and humility; and deeply informed by Ashtanga Yoga, Ayurveda and the Gaga movement language. For example, Mūla Workshops, Yoga/Art for Kids and Teens, Ayurvedic Fundamentals, the Compassionate Movement Workshop and more. 

Through making, doing and facilitating, she asks three key questions:

  • How do we make art in environments that are in crisis?

  • How do we more meaningfully embody the values of care and compassion?

  • Where did we come from? Where are we going?
