In the magic hour of 8:08pm last Friday night, I learnt that I have a friendly relationship with the unknown. In this past month, I gave myself a week off and by invitation of a dear friend, went up to Minjerribah / North Stradbroke Island on Quandamooka country. For the most part, I gazed at… Continue reading Here I am
With much to consolidate and reflect on, and good gigs this second half the year, the last quarter of 2017 brings good news. I will be joining these wonderful people in the 2018 Future Leaders Program. Very excited to take The Artist as Driver and all the surrounding questions and thoughts on this arts sector… Continue reading 2018 Future Leaders Cohort

I arrived in Uluru Sunday afternoon alone, and it was a surprising 28 degree Celsius. I felt the dryness of my skin and the sharpness of the sun on my face… Continue reading 过客
The Australian Federal elections is upon us. And as a permanent resident, I am not eligible to vote. And fair enough.

Such an important conversation.
It was a great honour to be a guest alongside Angharad Wynne-Jones for the Audio Stage podcast by Jana Perković and Fleur Kilpatrick with Kieran Ruffles.

Our discussion was deeply honest, critical, and – on listening back – expansive and ambitious for what we each hope to make possible across all our working contexts.
