Poetry and money

Local poet and wordsmith David Hallett holds the trophy he won at Woodford Folk Festival for his performance story about that festival. He was very excited with the win. (The eyes say it all.)

Award-winning Nimbin poet David Hallett has another trophy for his somewhat laden trophy cabinet. At the recent Woodford Folk Festival David won the inaugural Spirit of Woodford Story Award with the tale of his 15 years of attending/performing at the festival, which earned him the trophy and $2000.

Congratulations David. (David will be buying all poets and storytellers a drink over the next week...)

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
