I’ve got two very different events coming up – but each as interesting and relevant to my preocupations as the other. Firstly, Saturday August 25th I’ve been invited by the Molonglo Group to speak on art, gentrification and development (a recurring theme for me lately). It’s part of a series of workshops and presentations they’re […]

A bit of a late winter flurry… August 24th This Must Be The Place – Narrabundah College arts alumni evening. more info here I’ll be MC on the night, interviewing graduates about their creative paths since college and sharing some of my own stories too. August 26th Millennials Strike Back – panel for the Griffith […]

I’ve been coordinating Girls Rock! Canberra (GR!C) for the past few months, and talking about the program with founder and director Chiara Grassia since the start of the year (or the end of last year, it’s fuzzy now). The 2017 session wrapped yesterday – a showcase gig after a full and very busy week of […]

After a great many months in progress I can now share the new piece I’ve written for Griffith Review, for their current edition ‘Millennials Strike Back’ – Navigating Life In Art. It’s my attempt at working through some of the big things I’m processing around my working life at the moment – the things I’ve done and the […]

As 2017 began the year ahead seemed like a single mass, dense and empty. It was like looking into the sky or deep, deep water – distances perhaps close or far, impossible to judge, impossible to know how to feel, to act. I feel so tiny, and so average, at this point of time. Any […]

Writing is a slow-burn gig, that’s for sure. Early this year I’ll be seeing the big reveal of few things I worked hard on in 2016, while some other new works come together seemingly overnight. One such piece is The Old Lady Cat, published by Feminartsy. It’s a memoir piece, about a cat, which sounds awful […]

  Seven years ago I wrote a short post here on my site about the work of Eden Waugh. Today and yesterday it has attracted a lot of attention, sadly due to the release of Eden’s name as the victim of a murder early last month. Between the news story and my post there’s not much […]

A few months ago I was asked to be one of the featured artists in Her Canberra’s ‘breaking the mould’ edition. I was chuffed, and then even moreso when I found out the calibre of the company I would be keeping in those pages. It was great to chat to Josephine Walsh about some of my […]

Next week is BIG. On Wednesday evening I join The Childers Group to facilitate ‘We Should Talk’ – a session for emerging arts leaders in the ACT. With this event the Childers crew are test-driving a new model of informal discussion and networking that they hope to manage alongside their major events and ongoing advocacy. […]
