Never Forget To Play

As part of the ‘Spectrum Now’ Festival, Funkt Creative, Play Bar and Behind the Front bring you an evening of spirited enchantment where imagination takes flight!

Following on from last year’s successful debut group curation, inner city artist Julia Odgers has brought together 6 unique artists that delve into the realm of imagination, breaking down the barriers to provide a fun and adventurous evening under the theme “Never Forget To Play.”

Displaying work from a variety of disciplines including neon signage, illustration, fine and graphic art, the evening is all about getting back to basics when life was uncomplicated and fun.  “It’s a night away from the 9 to 5, a playground full of art, music and spoken word.”  Odgers is always looking for ways to “entice people to forget about the daily grind and have a little fun.”

Keeping with the interactive theme, a photo booth will be on hand for those wishing to embrace their alter ego.  Bravo Child will be performing through the power of spoken word, alongside 10-piece band Bateria 61 and DJ edseven providing the night’s soundtrack.

Launch is on the 20th March 2015 @6pm

Paintings by the acclaimed aboriginal artist, Robert Campbell Jnr, selected from his body of work across two decades – the 1980’s and 1990’s – will go on show at Artbank Sydney’s Waterloo gallery this February through May 2015. Titled ‘History Painter’  the exhibition has been curated by Djon Mundine OAM, the influential writer, critic and independent curator who helped revolutionise the way contemporary Aboriginal art is presented and understood.

The collection of 25 works painted on canvas and board was inspired by Artbank’s significant holdings of Campbell Jnr’s PAINTINGS which are known for their frank and sophisticated recording of personal memories intertwined with stories of Australia’s colonial past and the continuing brutality of racism throughout the 20th century.

Verse & Voice: A Poetry and Spoken Word Festival

Saturday 14 March 2015, 10:00am – 6:30pm

NSW Writers’ Centre, Callan Park Rozelle NSW

For the first time, the NSW Writers’ Centre presents Voice & Verse: A Poetry and Spoken Word Festival this March. Approaching poetry and performance from multiple angles, this festival focuses on the diversity of activity within the poetry field including slam poets, rappers, singer-songwriters, micropoets, publishers, activists, text artists and more.

Festival directors Fiona Wright and Miles Merrill come from opposite ends of the poetry spectrum – Fiona from the publishing world, Miles from the spoken word scene. Though these areas rarely mix, Fiona and Miles have shared their contacts to collaborate on a festival that will showcase diversity, not difference. Almost every session features poets from multiple spheres of poetry – and there are practical panels on publishing, editing, and producing, alongside those that talk about ideas, works, and content.

Featuring Omar Musa, Judith Beveridge, Darren Hanlon, Tug Dumbly, Kate Middleton, Candy Royalle, Richard Tipping, Steven Herrick, Kid Solo, Susan Sleepwriter, Pip Smithand many more, Verse & Voice will stimulate you and expand your ideas of what poetry can be.
