Ruha Fifita (b. 1990, Vava’u, Tonga; lives in Brisbane, Australia) is a visual and performing artist investigating the histories of collaborative frameworks for art-making and the evolution of the social values and functions that they fulfil and/or have the potency to capture, propagate, and influence. In 2006 she co-founded ON THE SPOT (OTS), an arts organisation aimed at exploring and utilising the arts as a tool for community building. Ruha is currently Pacific Arts Research Assistant for QAGOMA.
