Lara Ball - Founder of Wild Kombucha by Ballsy
Lara Ball pursued the intersection of performance and installation before completing a Master of Film and Digital Image at SCA in 2007.
Inspired by additional studies in architecture, she investigated public art as both a creator and director. In 2007 Ball self-funded an ambitious installation on Cockatoo Island, before it became one of the key sites for the Biennale of Sydney, this project saw her move to the UK, where she was part of several international art exhibitions in Russia and Turkey.
In 2011, Ball returned to Sydney to work as the Public Art Coordinator for the City of Sydney. It was during this time, together with her Eye Surgeon husband Matt, that they launched Ballsy Brewing (2013) which creates their signature brew Wild Kombucha, a drink created through ancient brew methods of green and black tea mixed with raw cane sugar which throughout a 4-6 week fermentation process creates a living product full of organic acids.
