I had a great night representing Create, Innovate Gosford City, mingling with some great people within the Creative Industries of Australia, as well as key government staff, that can make such a difference to arts and culture.
There was live paste-ups happening whilst The Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore MP, addressed the floor, which immediately appealed to me. It’s excellent to see businesses, council and the like, championing the use of empty spaces for creative industries.
I feel very privileged to be part of a unique Contemporary Australian art scene that is right at the very forefront of the artist world. I’m not into white walls much. I respect high art institutions, to a degree. Yet, it is within the low (or no) budget, where upon my heart shall remain. It was great to meet so many like-minded creatives, on the same wavelength.
