In 2007-2008, Rosa carried out a project related to the St Marys bushfires in 2006. One of the early outcomes of this Art, Health and Wellbeing Regener8, project was the publishing of a book titled ‘Regener8: Stories and Impressions of the East Coast Bushfire 2006’.

Her papers and conference presentations emerging since from this project have focused on community resilience and healing after natural disaster though ‘grass roots’ action and creative initiatives.
