Diverse perspectives from an Australian creative, composer and arts educator
When will the germs go away? Art, the pandemic and immunodeficiency
“COVID-19 is changing our community, and artistic expression can share the stories of those who have been silenced.”
Don’t leave us behind – creating a ‘new normal’ for the vulnerable
“…the arts sector must continue adapting its practice to ensure that it promotes public health, and provide artistic experiences to those who might need it most.”
Can artists wake us from COVID apathy?
“… we need new perspectives to change the national discourse to one that is bold, pragmatic, and compassionate.”
Who pays the piper now?
“The pandemic has exposed rifts between arts organisations and freelance musicians. We need to recast the relationship for everyone to thrive.”
It’s a small galaxy after all
“It is humbling to reflect how this incredible project started in a hotel lobby in Tallinn more than ten years ago.”
Is it OK to jump on the bandwagon?
“… how do First Nations collaborative perspectives impact my life as an Australian? What right do I have to answer such a question when I am steeped in white male privilege?”
Why creative education is so essential right now
“… problem-solving in these constraints is a wonderful way to exemplify the fact that creativity is the art of playing with the unfamiliar.”
Creativity amidst COVID-19 – Leading a social recovery
“The arts can nurture expression, and social cohesion. Few industries possess this ability, which is why the arts are so relevant right now.”
Invisible drums and hidden cultures this Lunar New Year
“…there is so much opportunity to listen to, search for, perform and program music that digs deeper.”
