Flying in from one island to another
From the far north to the far south
From a small grass roots community festival in Eastern Indonesia to the great National Regional Arts Conference in Launceston.
From the third to the first we say
Floating between worlds, between head spaces, between cultures and perspectives,
I am slowly landing…wondering about the ways that art infiltrates, entwines, accumulates and filters through our lives and minds in these very different places.
Bringing people together , circling , embracing , stimulating ,confronting.
Art as celebration, art as life, art as food for the soul, arts as food for thought, art as tradition, art as liberation , art as culture.
Junction 2010 seems like it might be all of these at once and more.
Can’t wait till Thursday.
