HOT: Telegramstop

Today I’ve been channelling my inner Swedish housewife by baking some cinnamon buns and walnut and sultana bread. As I haven’t managed to leave the house yet (it’s so warm and smells so good!), I thought I’d write an overdue HOT about Telegramstop. Everyone’s communicating via the electronic world these days. I confess that I […]

HOT: Gertrude Street Projection Festival, Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Like High Street Northcote, Gertrude Street is a creative hub which runs an arts festival in partnership with residents of the street.

My new membership has practically saved me money as I’ve imbibed numerous mugs of complimentary peppermint tea (saved […]

NOT: Exhibition 12, C3 Contemporary Arts Space, Abbotsford Convent, 1 St Heliers St, Abbotsford

C3 Contemporary Arts Space is a non-profit exhibition space located in the basement of peaceful Abbotsford Convent, now converted into an arts, culture and education precinct. The three rooms house rotating temporary exhibits, and its latest show is simply called ‘Exhibit 12‘ so there doesn’t appear to be any unifying theme. The postcard looked so […]
