RABBITS AND NUMBATS AT THE MPAVILION
Thu 25 Oct 2018, 2.30pm–5.30pm
MPavilion, Queen Victoria Gardens, St Kilda Rd, Melbourne.
Taking Shaun Tan and David Marsden't book, The Rabbits, and the artist collective MMMM's public art performance in the city last year as inspiration, we asked can rabbits and numbats be coerced into cohabiting the same ideological political and or social space?

DINNER CONVERSATIONS AT THE MISSION
Mission to Seafarers, Victoria 221 Flinders St, Melboiurne
September 2017 ongoing
Over the last 100 years volunteering has been the mainstay of the Mission To Seafarers. We were invited to create an artwork for the MTS centennial celebration, which was held in September, 2107
In highlighting the essential nature of volunteering to the organisation, we further explored the richness and vitality of the MTS volunteer community by gathering information about the volunteer. We initiated conversations that sought individual stories, their role within the organisation and heir feelings, opinions and ideas about the generous act of giving time. This information was be used to create further artworks in the leadup to the September that highlight the impact and importance of your role at the Mission and the cahnges in these roles after the introduction of shipping containers.
Food for Conversation recipe booklets which show old recipes that may have been served by the famous Ladies Harbour Lights Guild at their many functions, sea shanty evenings and volunteer BBQs accompanied the main even - a diiner at the exhibiion.
