Expression Through Art https://joy.org.au/wellwellwell/2021/01/expression-through-art/ Fri, 22 Jan 2021 04:31:26 +0000 http://joy.org.au/wellwellwell/?p=3028 (Image by Peter Walples-Crowe: Alpine Dingoes & Corroboree Frogs - both creatures found on Ngarigu Country) This week, Jessie has invited Peter Waples-Crowe and Luke George to discuss self-expression through art. Peter is a Ngarigo artist who shares with us his experience of the intersection between being Aboriginal and queer, and how he uses art to express this experience, as well as make sense of it, whilst using it as his own personal healing tool. Peter has been been a finalist several times in the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards as well as the Victorian Indigenous Art Awards. Our second guest, Luke George, who is an international artist, rope-worker and performer, shares with us on how he uses art to push the boundaries in the exploration of intimacy as an artist and in the process uncovers new layers in how the audience engages with the art. Luke has recently been appointed as Artistic Associate of Temperance Hall and is a recipient of a fellowship from Australian Council of the Arts.

While the organisation is drawing closer to four decades in its history, the shift in the organisation has been significant in recent years. Chad Hughes is the President of Thorne Harbour Health and he’s been at the helm during some of these massive changes. As he nears his 6-year term limit on the Board, Chad sits down with Cal Hawk to discuss what’s it’s been like in that leadership role. Chad discusses the challenges in governance, rebranding, and addressing the needs of lesbian, bisexual, and queer women as well as the importance of community elders like the late Jim Hyde and Tony Maynard. And later on in the show, Neil Pharaoh joins the show as the Director of GiveOUT Day in Australia. On Friday 16 October, the online initiative is helping nearly seventy LGBTIQ organisations, groups, and projects get much needed funds in a year that has hit us all pretty hard.
