This. Greek tragedy meets Queer ball culture in this fierce and fabulous new play, adapted from Euripides’ The Trojan Women and inspired by the seminal documentaryParis is Burning.
House mother, Hecuba, has dedicated her life to protecting her children and the chosen family that they all cling
to for comfort and support. But when a mysterious plague begins to rip through their community they face their biggest challenge yet, as they are forced to engage with a society that doesn’t understand or even value their ex-
istence…

A modern observation of HIV/AIDS that recontextualises Greek characters as Queer bodies of colour, And She
Would Stand Like This is a powerful roar and fight for survival.

“This show is a celebration of the balls and culture that inspired Pose, Paris is Burning and RuPaul’s Drag Race – featuring vogueing sequences, larger-than-life characters, and heart-thumping musical interludes.”, adds ATC Ar-
tistic Director Brandon Pape. “And since it’s based on The Trojan Women, we’ll take audiences on an emotional roller coaster that explores themes of survival, betrayal, and finding your chosen family. The space will be configured like a fashion show, with a runway down the middle and audience on two sides facing each other – blurring the line between audience and stage. I have no doubt that this show is going to provide one of the most unique and eclectic experiences at the 2022 Midsumma.”

Launching in 2019, Antipodes Theatre Company is a prime example of the fortitude and creativity firmly planted
in the Melbourne Independent Arts sector. Founded by a group of New York ex-pats, the company swiftly evolved
with onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and over the past two years has created a dedicated community through
their various online programs and shows, and sharp business acumen. They strive to maintain an inclusive and
safe workspace, with productions that have a dedicated focus on working with women, ethnically diverse artists, people with disability, trans and non-binary people, seniors, and other members of historically or culturally mar-
ginalised communities who are not well represented on stage.

Starring Melbourne’s own Kikki Temple and showcasing an incredible cast of local IBPOC artists, And She Would
Stand This Way promises to be a definite highlight on the 2022 Victorian Arts Calendar,

Weave It! is a free, 17-day interactive and evolving exhibition, multi-sensory installation and workshop series for children and their grown-ups, held at The Store, at Abbotsford Convent. For Weave It! Abbotsford Convent has commissioned a creative collaboration between multidisciplinary textile artists Lisa Waup (Gunditjmara and Torres Strait Islander) and John Brooks.
Throughout the month of January, children are invited to collaborate with the artists and each other, immersing themselves in the engaging practices of textiles and weaving, resulting in a “takeover” as the work grows into a wonderland of colourful, bright, fun fabrics and textures throughout the space. DIY videos can be seen here.

The exhibition will be supported by artist facilitation (including drop-in, hands-on workshops and come-and-go activities) enabling children and families to learn hands-on craft practices grounded in First Nations explorations of interconnectivity, storytelling, and sustainability. While incorporating natural and found materials such as sticks or recycled materials to build into the work, participants can spark discussions about recycling materials, retelling the stories of our cultures and celebrating community.

Artists Lisa and John are passionate about everyone’s right to access great contemporary arts experiences. “Children are often framed as passive receivers of art that was made without them in mind, and we want to turn this around. We believe that children should have an active engagement in arts and their community, and this exhibition will help facilitate this,” says Lisa.

“Weaving works well with children because it follows a simple, repetitive formula that can produce small or large outcomes, using a variety of objects and materials,” John explains. “I hope that the children will take away the ability to look at everyday objects as potential materials, and learn to make string out of anything… which will hopefully lead to a wide range of children growing up with the ability to transform textile waste into functional textile materials. The fashion industry is one of the world’s biggest polluters, so I hope that the kids will become more resourceful and use the ideas in these workshops to slow down their own consumption as they grow up.”

Lisa Waup is a Gunditjmara and Torres Strait Islander and Italian woman born in Naarm (Melbourne). A multidisciplinary artist and curator, she works across weaving, printmaking, photography, sculpture, textiles, jewellery and installation. Waup’s studio-based practice illustrates and symbolises her life’s journey through discovery and connection. Her work highlights the importance of tracing lost history, ancestral relationships, Country, motherhood and time through woven stories of her past, present and future into contemporary forms. Currently Waup is undertaking a Master of Contemporary Art Degree at the VCA at Melbourne University. She has exhibited at multiple galleries across Australia along with ReDot Gallery in Singapore and been acquired by many national and international collections, including the NGV.

John Brooks is a Melbourne-based multimedia artist, whose practice reflects the interconnected, anthropomorphic qualities and relationships between objects and humans. Originally trained as a textile designer, Brooks now works predominantly with hand-weaving techniques combined with various mediums such as video, performance, sculpture and installation. He has exhibited extensively in Melbourne, interstate and internationally over the past ten years.

John explains, “I’ve wanted to work with Lisa for a while because of her sensitivity with materials and the graphic yet organic quality of her print work and drawings, as well as her approach to found materials… there’s always been intuitive feeling that we’d make amazing work together, which I think is so important when working with another artist.”

Based just outside Melbourne CBD, Abbotsford Convent is a National Heritage Listed site and Australia’s largest arts and cultural precinct—a place of art, culture, collaboration and learning. Convent Kids is an exciting program developed by Abbotsford Convent in collaboration with leading artists, offering a range of fun hands-on activities that inspire children and their families to experiment, learn and make art together. Convent Kids is supported by City of Yarra and Weave It! is supported by Creative Victoria.

Beyond a definition of physical and mental illness, ‘sick’ contains both negative and positive associations. For Ryan, a person with autism, ‘sick’ implies an impulse to act out of the ordinary with his body and thoughts; to arrange things the way he feels and sees them. Phillip and Ryan turn the negative on its head, taking inspiration in the slang connotations of the word ‘sick’ as ‘cool’ or ‘fabulous’.

Phillip and Ryan work together to meld their disparate quirks, foibles, histories and limitations into a piece filled with dark humour, radical sentiment, sharp social commentary and ever-present dysfunction. SICK speaks about the beauty and awkwardness of moving and failing, as Phillip and Ryan put their mismatched bodies on the line to create this uniquely framed, personally exposing quest for shared grace.

Choreographic quirk is accentuated by the glam-shock meets rhinestone-biker-trash aesthetics of visual artist Jake Preval’s design; a psychedelic gnome garden further sets the scene of Ryan’s indefatigable and visionary imagination.

SICK’s debut at Midsumma Festival at Temperance Hall will move audiences through an entertaining and immersive shared visceral experience, purposely designed to shift perceptions around the capabilities of artists – and everyone – with disability.

The new venue includes a 75 seat black box theatre, big, beautiful gallery, separate cabaret stage, full sized recording studio, working artists’ studios, dark room and two separate bar areas.

The Motley Bauhaus first launched in 2018 on Scotchmer Street in Fitzroy North. Creating a unique but small multidisciplinary home for arts practices proved popular and as such we are upgrading into this new location, more able to house our expanded practice.

The Motley Bauhaus will be launching this brand new space on January 20 with a series of live performances, exhibitions and general fun times and merriment. For a more detailed look at our opening line-up please head to our website

Motley Bauhaus founder Jason Cavanagh said: “I am so excited and scared but also thrilled to be opening this new space. It feels really wild to be doing this right now, with everything that’s going on. It’s been a tough, tough time for artists, for the industry as a whole.  This is a massive investment in our arts community at a time when it is desperately needed. I think art thrives in adversity and I’m really keen to explore and support that.”

 

This brand new, completely independent multidisciplinary arts venue will be launching after a long delay due to restrictions, and what better time to be bringing this completely unique vision into the heart of Melbourne to help revitalise our independent arts sector.

‘Portraiture in Black and White’ includes graphite portraits of Boroondara locals frozen in a moment by Melbourne based artist Sue-Ann Roll. The artist has created 11 graphite portraits for the exhibition featuring a fellow artist from Hawthorn Artists Society, her dentist, a young executive, an elderly Victorian Police Blue Ribbon volunteer, a local fisherman and more, including her daughter dressed in lockdown attire.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The simplicity of the graphite pencil producing tones that resonate the essence of the subject is drawing at its purest. My main aim was to use tone to explore the ridges of time on the faces of my subjects to capture the essence of their character through my eyes.” says Sue-Ann.

Sue-Ann is an art and graphic Communications teacher who specialising in painting, life drawing and portraiture. In 2014 she attended the Accademia D’Arte in Florence where she had exposure to working with artists from all around the world exchanging various techniques and sharing memorable moments from their artistic life.

The Melbourne Actors LAB carries on the tradition of professional actor training in the method originated by Lee Strasberg, Harold Clurman and Cheryl Crawford at the Group Theatre. The Group Theatre launched  the careers of Elia Kazan, Clifford Odets, Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner who went on to become teachers of talent like James Dean, Marlon Brando, Robert DeNiroAl Pacino, Ellen Burstyn, Sally Field, Shelly Winters, Anne Bancroft, Dustin Hoffman, Mickey Rourke, and so on- all because their place of training fermented the work of the actor to new levels.  The Group theatre went onto become the Actor’s Studio, the home of acting giants which pushed American Theatre and Film to a whole new standard.

 

THE MELBOURNE ACTORS LAB is the home of the actor who takes their work to such a level, a place beyond reasonable possibility, working with an absolute commitment toward one goal; the truthful revelation of character. It’s work that hones the actors instrument to a place where is it at immediate disposal wherever and whenever it is required. The repeated practice of the exercises of Lee Strasberg lead to something much more profound than at first glance – the absolute mastery of the actors’ instrument, body, mind and voice – creating artists that paint with a finer brush that also have the resilience and wherewithall to work under the most difficult of circumstances, in theatre or film.

 

Beyond the actor training, THE LAB provides an environment where actors can meet filmmakers and start a collaborative relationship together. Filmmakers are encouraged to come into class and observe the actors process. The work in itself inspires a passion for actors to create their own work; theaTre and film projects, and that is the drive that creates, builds and sustains a career.

The repeated practice of the exercises of Lee Strasberg lead to something much more profound than at first glance – the absolute mastery of the actors’ instrument, body, mind and voice – creating artists that paint with a finer brush that also have the resilience and wherewithall to work under the most difficult of circumstances, in theatre or film.
 
Beyond the actor training, THE LAB provides an environment where actors can meet filmmakers and start a collaborative relationship together. Filmmakers are encouraged to come into class and observe the actors process. The work in itself inspires a passion for actors to create their own work; theaTre and film projects, and that is the drive that creates, builds and sustains a career.

the ever-growing body of knowledge that positions gardens as a powerful tool for connecting communities, reducing social
isolation and providing positive, life-affirming experiences.
The garden has been designed to facilitate healing and restoration for vulnerable communities and will now be a vital space for

LEARN MORE










Sidney Nolan: Myth Rider brings together more than 100 works by Sidney Nolan from the period 1955–1966, during which the artist grappled with the subject of the Trojan War, its parallels with the Gallipoli campaign, and its origins in the myth of Leda and the Swan.
Throughout these interconnected series, Nolan employs his remarkable visual and mental acuity to meld classical allusions, literary sources, historical references, and his own personal response to war and its disastrous consequences, to convey a series of powerful insights into the broader mythic and universal dimensions of human conflict. Combining compelling subject matter and a highly inventive approach to a wide range of media, the rich array of works in this exhibition reveal Nolan’s innate understanding of and facility for mythopoesis—the making of myth—whereby past and present, ancient and modern, legend and history, are conflated and vividly reimagined.
Although previous exhibitions of Nolan’s Gallipoli series have highlighted his references to classical sources, this will be the first exhibition to show these works in the context of the development of the artist’s vision of the tragedy of warfare from his early works on Hydra (1955–56), through his Leda and Swan series (1958–60) and culminating in his large-scale interpretations of Greek mythology (1966).
Curator, Anthony Fitzpatrick explains the title of this exhibition is taken from The Myth Rider, 1958–59, one of Nolan’s early major paintings from his Gallipoli series:
“This painting, together with a large selection of Nolan’s works from the period 1955–1966, chart his decade long engagement with the epic subject of the Trojan War, its parallels with the Gallipoli campaign, and its origins in the myth of Leda and the Swan.
“What emerges from these three interconnected series is a deepening sense of the tragic which came to inform Nolan’s vision of warfare as a predestined and overwhelming force that is beyond human control.
“For Nolan, myths, like poems, are ‘forms of knowledge’ and feats of the imagination by which the most contradictory, complex and challenging experiences and ideas can be expressed and realised—and this is what he sought to transmit through his art,” Fitzpatrick said.

After nearly two years of lockdowns, cancellations, funding cuts, and never-ending uncertainty, Melbourne’s iconic Theatre Works is moving forward into 2022 with their trademark innovation, tenacity, and unflinching dedication to Australia’s independent arts sector.
Running on the 28th of November from 7pm at the new Explosives Factory, this years’ Launch is a hybrid Live-Streamed and in-person event. With the in-person event already fully booked out, the wider arts community are encouraged to join the festivities online when they are Live-Streamed from 7:30pm.
Located around the corner from the much-loved Acland St venue on Inkerman St, the new Explosives Factoryis a versatile workshop and development space complete with accommodation, bathroom, and kitchen facilities. This exciting setting will house new programs and also act as a year-round rehearsal spot to partnering artists. During Festivals it will be activated as a versatile 60 seat performance venue and, if needed, also provide a smaller and more intimate space for works less suited to the Theatre Works main space. And yes, it was an actual Explosives Factory in its past life.
An artist first organisation, Theatre Works has long existed to support emerging, established, local, national, and international artists. This crucial new growth of the organisation, as they move into their 41st year, highlights how they have prevailed for over four decades – acting as a vital springboard for hundreds of thousands of artists and arts makers in that time.
From January, Theatre Works will storm into 2022 and act as a vibrant hub to 5 Festivals in the first 3 months of the year; Mullet Festival, Midsumma, First Stories, Radical Acts Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival welcome audiences to the venues with a mix of reprogrammed work, First People led stories, and Victorian Arts Calendar favourites.
Following throughout the year, the organisation will support the creation of a vast array of works with new development and inhouse programming including (but not limited to) Associate Artists, She Writes, a Deakin University Partnership, Little Legends and Regional Arts Development and Accommodation Residencies.
Access and inclusion is also a constant driving force behind the creative programming and audience development focus at Theatre Works. They are in a frequent process of reassessing the venue (highlighted by their 20/21 Glasshouse), programming, and approach to embrace neuro-atypical audiences, people living with disability, mental illness, financial or social disadvantage. This also includes women, young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LGBTQIA+ and other community members.
Known for their endurance and ongoing commitment to Australia’s arts community, join Theatre Works this November as they smash open their 2022 program and move into the most exciting chapter in the evolution of the organisation.

Jude has always known she doesn’t want kids. Her sister Susie is unsure if her ovaries are twinging or if she just needs to wee. One day, in a café full of “yummy mummies”, Jude loses the plot and kicks a pram. Then gets arrested and is sent to anger management. Susie goes along for the ride and uses the opportunity to confess a secret…
Pramkicker tells the raucous and irreverent tale of two sisters on opposite ends of their 30’s grappling with the messiness of life, and the massive societal expectations surrounding motherhood.
In a climate where a woman’s right to make choices about her own body remains burningly relevant, Hasler’s hilarious and whip smart play is a bold love letter to women taking ownership of what they want, and what they don’t.
Dirty Pennies Artistic Director, Amy May Nunn says “Sadie Hasler’s fiercely funny, audacious script felt so timely and alive, I was chomping at the bit to get it on. The play’s ability to meaningfully tackle weighty feminist themes while also being gut achingly funny was central to its allure. Ultimately this work is a celebration of choice, and as a woman entering my 30’s, grappling with my own questions about having kids, reading this play made me feel less alone, less crazy and more human.”

SUMMER SHAKESPEARE RETURNS TO THE ROSE GARDEN AT THE ST. KILDA BOTANICAL GARDENS
Melbourne’s favourite Shakespeare Company returns to the St Kilda Botanical Gardens with their original musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s funniest farce The Comedy of Errors. This highly anticipated production will be the company’s 5th season at the Rose Garden where they have become a summertime staple gaining national and international acclaim for their larger than life family friendly productions.
Having developed what can only be described as a cult following, Melbourne Shakespeare Company has shown incredible resilience managing to produce three sellout seasons so far this year, despite a series of restrictions and lockdowns. With tickets for their productions selling out in minutes, this independent company has changed people’s perception of Shakespeare making accessible, engaging, hysterically funny productions that audiences can’t get enough of!
“Our shows combine all of the things audiences love about Shakespeare in the Summertime” explained Artistic Director Jennifer Sarah Dean (The Globe, Moulin Rouge! The Musical) “we give Shakespeare a young, fresh twist including all of your favourite contemporary music combined with exciting choreography, audience insteaction, beautiful costumes and all set in one of the most idyllic venues in Melbourne – the Rose Garden in St Kilda!”
With a star studded team including direction from Ben Adams (Pop-up Globe), original choreography from John Reed (West Side Story, Merrily We Roll Along) and Musical Direction from Benjamin Colley (Shrek!, Romeo & Juliet), the Comedy of Errors is set to be the must see production of the year.
Melbourne Shakespeare Company are proud to be an environmentally responsible company using only recycled, reclaimed and reused materials to create their incredible productions.  Audiences will be blown away at how the costumes from Aislinn Naughton (Frozen, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and set by Hayley James (As You Like It, The Winter’s Tale) can transform trash into treasure with their clever, conscious designs.
The Comedy of Errors is family friendly and audiences are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy in the sunshine. Seating is provided at the venue and protective sun wear is recommended for matinee performances.

Five years in the making and an odyssey in its creation, artist Marco Luccio presents Tales from The Greek art exhibition and book launch at fortyfivedownstairs.
This exhibition will be one of the biggest in scale and ambition in over thirty years of Luccio’s international art career. It features large canvasses, found objects, drypoints, etchings, charcoal drawings, collagraphs, ink, mixed media, pencil and monotypes.

Tales from The Greek will also feature a collaboration between Luccio and award-winning author John Hughes. After their 2013 critically acclaimed collaboration, The Garden of Sorrows, the pair have come together again for this stunning collection of eight narrative adaptations of Greek myths and tragedies.
Hughes incorporates versions of Sophocles’ Philoctetes, a classic triangle of trust and deceit, and Antigone, which reverses time’s arrow so that the protagonist’s life unfolds like a film running in reverse to explore the paradoxical implications of living in a family that has been cursed, as well as Aeschylus’ Oresteia, Euripides’ Hecuba, and evocative new renderings of Daedalus and Icarus, Sisyphus, and Achilles.
In response to the stories, Luccio’s series of artworks are both dramatic and gritty. Using a variety of mediums, he has been able to produce a collection of works that help bring the text to life in a rich and distinguished way. The stories require no prior knowledge of the myths on which they are based, but will appeal to readers who know and enjoy Greek myth and take pleasure in seeing how these timeless stories can be recast and reshaped into creative new forms.

With Tales from the Greek, Luccio’s artworks are instantly confronting, causing prompt reaction and attention from the spectator. When drypoint has been the chosen medium, Luccio’s signature style has shaped his visual interpretation into sensational yet striking artworks. Further, when Luccio has employed charcoal within the artworks, they are bursting with classical and sculptural chiaroscuro allowing him to capture Hughes’ dramatic emotive content.  Beyond the tense beauty of Luccio’s artworks, the thoughtful spectator will be generously rewarded by their association to the ancient Greek myths explored by Hughes.
Hughes says, “Luccio has reached deep inside himself and found there the spirit of ancient Greece, its blood and brutality, its tragedy and pathos, its clarity and excess, its beauty and its terror. The images are at once intimate and monumental, wild and restrained, stark and teeming with life. It’s as if he’s found a visual equivalent of a riddle, a stylistic method that not only represents but also embodies the paradoxical complexities inherent in these foundational stories.”


Luccio says, “When I read the stories the first time, I knew this was going to be a monumental project. I had worked with John last on The Garden of Sorrows, which has had great critical acclaim. John’s words inspired so many ideas along the themes of love, power, war, hate, revenge, sadness and ambition, together with many other emotions and traits. I love challenging myself to create new work and am constantly seeking ways to expand my artistic ability and creative scope. My hope for these works is that they not only resonate in a traditional way, but also are seen as fresh and contemporary interpretations of Greek mythical imagery.”
Visitors will be rewarded with an artist whose latest offering expands on an ever-growing body of work that is unique, exciting and always surprising. Those who know Luccio’s work will be familiar with the gritty and expressive visceral mark-making on display, which Luccio delivers in Trojan Horse sized chunks in Tales fr...]]>

fourth annual Austen Con; a much-loved celebration and

One of England’s most beloved novelists, Jane Austen was born in 1775 and wrote from a young age, initially to
amuse her family. Her six major novels, of which Pride and Prejudice is probably the best known, are set amongst
the British landed gentry and lauded worldwide for their wit, romance, and social commentary.
Running in the beautiful surrounds on Melbourne’s Abbotsford Convent, this year lucky ticket holders can partake
in activities that range from crafting, a speed dating game and dancing, an escape room, the art of letter writing
and lively discussions on an array of Austen inspired topics with a wonderful mix of guest presenters and expert
enthusiasts.

LEARN MORE Through a major display of more than 75 wall-based and sculptural works that traverses the entire ground-floor of The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, the exhibition will highlight each artist’s unique and significant place within Australian art, while also illuminating the sympathetic relationships between their works, exemplified by their shared use of materials such as corrugated iron, wire and other media.
New Zealand-born Gascoigne moved to Mount Stromlo in 1943 and the surrounding region greatly inspired her artistic practice thenceforth. Gascoigne is recognised for her textural works assembled from discarded items, including corrugated iron, feathers, wood and wire, as well as her distinctive wall-mounted pieces formed from reflective road signs and soft drink cases. Evoking the lyrical beauty of her local region through her use of materials, Gascoigne’s poetic works have had a radical impact on the ways in which the Australian landscape is represented and perceived. Her first exhibition was held in 1974 when she was 57 years old, and in 1982, Gascoigne was selected as the inaugural female artist to represent Australia at the Venice Biennale.
Born in 1962 and raised at Swan Hill in western Victoria, on Wamba Wamba traditional lands, Connelly-Northey is influenced by an amalgam of her father’s Irish ancestry and mother’s Waradgerie (Wiradjuri) heritage. She utilises materials often associated with European settlement and industrialisation and repurposes them into sculptural works that reference little-known traditional weaving techniques and Indigenous cultural objects, such as kooliman and dilly bags. Through her work, Connelly-Northey explores the dynamic and resilient nature of both her Country and Aboriginal heritage.
The exhibition will include works by both artists held in the NGV Collection as well as works from major public institutions and private collections around Australia. Highlight works include Gascoigne’s Pink window 1975, comprised of a found weathered window frame and corrugated iron. The work is the artist’s first galvanised iron work and is constructed to look like a drawn curtain, reflecting her memories of loneliness when she first moved to Mount Stromlo. Flash art 1987, also on display, is one of Gascoigne’s earliest assemblages and is uniquely fabricated out of salvaged reflective road signs.
Connelly-Northey’s Three rivers country 2010, pays homage to the artists maternal knowledge of water on Country, representing the land of her mother’s tribal boundary. A further work by Connelly-Northey is the wall-based Possum-skin cloak: Blackfella road, 2011-13, which uses woven barbed wire to reference the traditional garment. The use of materials by the artist signifies the desecration of Aboriginal burial sites that resulted from the construction of an unsealed road near Swan Hill.

LEARN MORE groundbreaking debut feature film for Ana Kokkinos, who adapted the screenplay from Christos
Tsiolkas’ novel, Loaded and Lauded as ‘the film that helped change Australian culture’ for opening dialogue and breaking
down the barriers between younger Greeks and their parents, Head On was first released in
August, 1998, earning nine AACTA Award nominations (formerly AFI) and international accolades
stemming from its premiere at Cannes Film Festival, where it screened as part of the coveted
Directors Fortnight program.
Confronting and compelling, Head On is a bleak look at race, sexuality and class in contemporary
Australian society.
Alex Dimitriades is exceptional in his role as Ari, an angry, confused, nihilistic, unemployed 19-
year-old Greek Australian. The film follows an intense 24 hours of his life, fuelled by drugs, booze
and anonymous sex as he grapples with his sexuality and clashes with his traditional Greek family.
Twenty-three years after its cinema release, Head On is still regarded as an iconic Australian film,
particularly by the LGBTQ+ community.

Artist Cameron Robbins has created a sunlight powered drawing instrument which draws in graphite onto the gallery’s foyer wall, inspired by the lunar eclipse of May 26 2021. Each line is made as sunlight filters through cloud, atmosphere and trees, to motivate a solar-motor driven pen. Each day, drawings accumulate from thousands of consecutive lines. Cameron explains: “During the eclipse we are reminded that the Earth always casts its shadow into space while the moon passes through it on its monthly journey and project onto it is the red ring of all the sunset and sunrises at once.”
Cameron’s work makes tangible the underlying structures and rhythms of natural forces, he has produced site-specific installations and exhibitions in art centres, disused buildings and outdoor sites in Australia, Japan, Norway, China, Germany and the UK.

LEARN MORE the community together, to support the community, with all profits donated to support refugees
and people seeking asylum. Available now at carinlavery.com
Carin has involved local residents in the creation of the calendar, which features 12 watercolours
of St Kilda’s stunning natural scenes, all nominated by local residents as their ‘favourite view’.
Also included are discount vouchers to promote local businesses.
All calendar profit is being donated to St Kilda’s Space2b Social Design program
‘Space2Fly’ which supports newly arrived migrants, refugees and people seeking asylum to start
their own enterprise to become financially independent. See their work at space2b.com.au
Carin said “With so many people struggling in this challenging year, I really wanted to benefit as
many people as possible, so that meant locals, businesses, social enterprise and people who
might be finding it particularly tough”.
Following a very successful 2021 calendar, from which Carin donated all profit to a local charity
supporting women and children experiencing domestic and family violence, this year, Carin
stretched further in her aspirations to provide community support.
As Carin explained “I tried to think from many angles for this one! Some people want Christmas
gifts, others want to support the important cause, our local businesses continue to need help, and
some people might just want to raise their spirits by looking at watercolours of our superb nature.
“So I packed in as much as I could into this venture, including painting 12 ‘favourite views’
nominated by people who know the area best – our local residents. I’ve also featured one very
talented Space2b artist/designer each month, each of whom has a CALD (culturally and
linguistically diverse) background”.
Carin believes that art can play an important role in raising the profile of important subjects and
in providing support. Similar to people in situations of domestic violence, COVID-19 can be
particularly challenging for refugees and new migrants. The impact of the pandemic was a key
factor in Carin’s choice of where to donate the profit this year.
“Space2b is an incredible local social enterprise, supporting over 200 people annually, from all
cultures, through work experience, product/business development events and mentoring. They
support people to move towards getting paid work, to feel included and part of a community – a
perfect fit for my community goal” Carin said.

that Melbourne has experienced over the years.
In 1835, as he walked the sacred grounds of the Boon Wurrung and Woi
Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nations, John Batman wrote in his diary,
‘This will be the place for a village.’ That small village rapidly grew into the
vibrant city of Melbourne.
Historical photographs are a window to the past; a time capsule that
allows us to walk in the footsteps of our predecessors. Now, this collection
enables us to imagine strolling down Bourke Street in 1875, or catching a
Collins Street tram in 1910, or walking through the city’s inner suburbs
many years ago. As well, a series of then-and-now photographs reveals a
striking contrast between the Melbourne of yesteryear and the city we are
familiar with today.
Adapted from the popular ‘Old Vintage Melbourne’ Instagram account,
this book invites you to reminisce about and cherish the important
heritage of the city of Melbourne. Turn back the clock and immerse
yourself in these captivating chronicles of an incredibly diverse, unique city.

Aarti Vincent – The Delhi Theatre Addict; Kru Harale – The Mumbai Drama Queen; James G Warren – The Hobart Golden Boy, come together in the melting pot of Melbourne to perform surreal, satirical and heart-warming skits.
We believe anyone can be anything. We dare to be amazing! Aarti Vincent is our visionary impetus,
Kru Harale is our vibrant innovator, and James G Warren is along for diversity. Come find out what
two Indian girls and a white guy bring to the world of drama.
WHAT WE DO:
Bouncing between standup, sketch and theatre, we’ll be performing the following skits:
‘The Art Of Seduction’ is an adaptation of a very heart-warming Russian play by Anton Chekov.
In the original play set in the 19th century AD, the seducer was a good old fashioned male; in this 21st
century adaptation our seducer is played by a female. Will she allure you, entice you or win your heart?
‘The Upside Down World’ is a satirical comedic take addressing the hot topics of diversity and sexism.
A world where women rule and white is no longer a privileged race. Will this straight white male tick the diversity box? Will he stand up for his ‘masculinist values’ and say no to sexual harassment?
TACF SQUAD:
Aarti Vincent, blissfully ignorant about her ‘person of colour’ identity, auditioned for a white British
character within weeks of arriving in Australia. She truly believes that ‘talent outshines ethnicity’.
“Aarti, carried off her role with such wonderfully involved look that she shone” – Indian Express
“Aarti is a great storyteller, weaving life events & experiences into her stand-up routines” – Glam Adelaide
Kru Harale has a vivacious energy that crackles through her routine as she describes
her perspective about Indians, Australia, Sex and more.
“Krutika is fearless and seems to be having fun on stage” – Theatre Now
“A comedy legend in the making” – Laugh Masters Academy
James G Warren is a white Tasmanian man who delivers mail for a living and performs
for the love of it. A Connoisseur of comedy, good friends and broccoli.

These queen stories are not fairy tales for small children. They are true tales of real women that every young person should know. The clever and brave women in this collection had power and used it to achieve their goals. They would prove themselves pioneers, problem solvers, inventors and, often, incredible leaders. These fast-paced, action-packed tales are stories that have been lost; stories that have remained untold.
The follow-up title to Powerful Princesses, Courageous Queens contains 10 stories of female leaders throughout history. These are adventure stories, not encyclopaedia entries. This is more than an encyclopaedia of great women – these are adventure stories that take readers to the moment of crisis, of triumph, of revelation.

This is a collection of tales that allows for emotional exploration, character identification and stimulation of the imagination – from exploring what it was like for Queen Nzinga, who fought in a grueling war with the Portuguese, to contemplating Queen Elizabeth’s decision to never marry, and how Empress Leizu made an extraordinary discovery that shaped fashion today.

LEARN MORE
Revered solo artist and film composer David Bridie announces the re-release of the soundtrack for the 1999 feature film ‘In A Savage Land’, directed by Australian screenwriter and producer Bill Bennett. The soundtrack is built from samples of musicians and ensembles of Trobriand Island (PNG) recorded by David and his collaborators and is accompanied by a full orchestra and electronic textures. Awarded Best Soundtrack at the Australian Film Institute awards (1999), the film is now available for viewing on streaming platform STAN and the soundtrack for the first time since it’s initial release on CD in 2000, is now able to be purchased via Bandcamp.
Set in the 1930s and 40s, ‘In A Savage Land’ is an epic love story that explores the relationship between two newly married anthropologists who travel to the Trobriand Islands in Papua New Guinea to study the sexual mores of a village. Their relationship begins to break down when the woman starts to question the validity of her husband’s work. She travels to another island to do her own research with a village of headhunters – but needs the help of a pearl trader to get her there. They begin to fall in love as war breaks out in the Pacific.
Of the soundtrack David says, ‘Bougainville drummer Ben Hakalitz and I wandered around the Trobriand Islands, recording stringbands, conch shells and old men and women singers, and these amazing loloni flute players-blowing through hollowed out paw paw stems. The other part of this soundtrack was fully orchestrated..big strings, oboe and clarinet and French horn wafts, chords and melodies. The third element was working up sound textures with cut up electronica bleeps and kundu rhythms. Director Bill Bennett and acclaimed sound designer Wayne Pashleigh pretty much gave me free reign. I assure you this is not always the case with soundtracks.’

I started volunteering October 2019 , helping the waitresses at Kama café with English, the café and art space Julien and his partner Kek Soon  started a few years before.
Kek Soon had a dream , to create a space for children to come and learn skills such as cooking plus a lot of art.  Soon like most Khmer over 25 had little or no education, Kek was cleaning boats and selling cakes as a 7 year old to help her family survive. She taught herself English while working as a maid in Malaysia in her late teens. Kek Soon has now had a few exhibitions of her art in Cambodia.
The festival came and went and it was time for Kama café to close for the move to Fish Island  to begin the dream of creating a community Arts Centre.
Fish Island or Trey Koh in Khmer is a few kms from Kampot  the island is full of salt farms and small rice farms.
Finally in Feb 2020 they opened the gates to the children of the island , I was helping the small children with English,  my quest to find any sort of English reading books came to nothing , There were Khmer  books available but as with a lot of the residents books are way down on the list , they barely earn enough to exist yet alone buy books.  If they worked in a factory the average wage was 180 Us dollars a month.  Having a basic understanding of English is very important in a place that  tourism  is the main employer.  Of course two months in we went into lockdown and all schools were closed, volunteering was a no go. Over the next few months Kek would call in and visit and a few times I was able to go and visit . My last visit in early Dec 2020 I asked the children if there was anything they wanted that maybe I can get for them on my return to Melbourne.
Books they said , we would love a library.
So with this thought in the back of my mind I settled back in StKilda , but with lockdowns coming and going it wasn’t the time to put this into action that was until after a chain of serendipitous events I ended up volunteering for the StKIlda writers week  where I was asked to take charge of the childrens section.
The festival was to be in August but lockdowns prevailed and it was cancelled , being optimistic we decided to start with chapters and do one in October as we would be free right , wrong!! It turned out the weekend we chose was Halloween, I searched everywhere to find a childrens  Australian  Halloween story , so I wrote one based in StKIlda . While searching for grants that were suitable for our festival I came across the Victorian Education Department Childrens week grant  it just so happened childrens week was Halloween week so with the consent of my SKWW team I applied it was only then that I joined the dots to somehow turn this into a meeting of the children of FICAC and local children and somehow get books donated by the local children to send to the children of  FICAC so their dream of a library would come true and I would honour my promise.
My vision was for the story to be  read  on live stream with children watching together, another never ending  lockdown stormed in. I didn’t even think I would get the grant but early Sept Mick rang and said we have got it.
So now we are creating with the help of creatives at the Alex theatre  a mini movie with the animated story , clips about FICAC  from Kek Soon and some local children . to be shown on line during Childrens week.”

Sitting in the dark on the phone, you share a conversation with a stranger. You open a brief window into each other’s lives, and then say goodbye, a little lighter than before. Dark Talk Time is an art project that connects pairs of strangers via the phone for conversations full of depth, wonder and surprise. With half the country in lockdown, it’s the perfect opportunity for people to experience a little island of connection, in the current sea of social distance.Book a time, call the number, and be welcomed by a host, who pairs two people at a time, and offers prompts to assist the conversation. Last season, one person said “I was feeling a little bit anxious initially…And then here I am, two hours and 20 minutes later, after having a wonderful meandering, intellectual and philosophical conversation that went many places.” For another, “Something in our conversation both enabled me to feel more of a sense of possibility for the future and also enabled my partner to feel more of a sense of possibility for her now.”

Bragg announced
Australia’s most prestigious music award, The Australian Music Prize (AMP), returns for its 17th installment in 2021
revealing its nominated albums to date up for a huge $30,000 cash prize thanks to major sponsor SoundMerch.
Open to all Australian artists who have released an eligible album during the 2021 calendar year, the SoundMerch
AMP will award one lucky act with the $30K cash prize for the best album of the year as decided by an expert panel
of industry judges. In a SoundMerch AMP first, this year will also feature a special international guest judge,
welcoming renowned artist Billy Bragg to the diverse judging panel. Judges are currently listening to over 300
eligible 2021 albums, with more still to come as albums will continue to be added weekly right up to the end of the
year, estimating to amount to upwards of 415 releases judged for the 16th annual prize.
&quot;The AMP is such a wonderful reflection of the calibre of music that was released in one year and I truly love
that it’s judged on the music itself and the album as a whole, no matter who you are or who you are
‘represented by’. I have always had such a high regard for it and having our album make the shortlist last
year truly was mind blowing. Now to be on the other side and listening to all the incredible works that have
been released so far, it is a heartening sigh that regardless of what’s happening in the world, the quality of
music and art being created is forging ahead.&quot;
– Fanny Lumsden, AMP 2020 Shortlisted Artist &amp; AMP 2021 Judge
For the first time in its 17 year history, The SoundMerch AMP has a guest international judge, Billy Bragg. Set to
tour Australia for three unique shows on consecutive nights in five major cities from January 14 to February 10 2022
as a part of his One Step Forward, Two Steps Back tour, Billy Bragg joins an all encompassing lineup of
Australian music industry professionals including artists, radio broadcasters, record store owners, music writers and
editors currently compiling the immense longlist of SoundMerch AMP nominated albums. Bragg says he is
honoured to be included as The SoundMerch AMP’s inaugural international judge, &quot;Australia has given me so
much encouragement and support over the years, I’m pleased to have the opportunity to return some of that
sentiment to up and coming Australian artists&quot;
As for the prize itself, 2021 major sponsor SoundMerch is thrilled to be presenting the winner of the 2021
SoundMerch AMP with an increase in prize money following one of the toughest years the music industry has ever
faced. SoundMerch owner, Tim Everist says he is proud to initiate the change and further support Australian artists
in 2021,​​ &quot;Our partnership with The AMP last year worked exactly as I had hoped – SOUNDMERCH was able to
give back to the artists that we do business with whilst promoting new business, so this year I’m pleased to
be able to increase the cash prize by $10,000 to $30,000.&quot;
The nominated artists and albums up for the 2021 Australian Music Prize announced so far can be found at The
SoundMerch AMP website, with more eligible entrants still to be deliberated as new releases come to light, so be
sure to follow The SoundMerch AMP’s socials to stay up to date with any new inclusions. The final 9 nominees will
be announced in early 2022, with the winner revealed Thursday 3 March 2022. The judges are still listening to
albums, so if you know of an eligible album,]]>
