And that’s a wrap – now what’s next?

And that’s a wrap! And what a great week it was 🙂 Thanks to everyone involved and to everyone who came to a show or supported BRINK Festival

Even though the performances have ended, the conversations and questions continue.

The role of government; of the audience; and of the corporations who profit from being in WA?

It’s a complex conversation that involves ethics, economics, social justice and accountability. I’ve had a crack as trying to scope this in a recent opinion piece I wrote for ArtsHub

There’s a lot more to be said, and I hope many more people will contribute their thoughts, ideas, hopes and inspiration to help us solve this.

Let’s keep talking…
