The Leiden Guide to Feminism


  ‘…when young women move into the world and they realise… “Why am I being treated differently?” and they start to blame themselves because they don’t understand that they are part of a historic pattern…which is…working a little bit against them.’ – Emma Watson [for Buzzfeed, March 2017]   The other day a friend of mine came across a term that she didn’t fully understand: intersectional feminism. She realised she should probably know what that was so she asked me to help her learn about this. I am by no means the world’s feminist guru, however, I am fascinated by… Continue Reading

A Chat with Sarah Morrison – Musicals, ABBA and Mamma Mia


  I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I am not a fan of musicals. All that sing-talking makes me want to puke into my favourite Miu Miu cat clutch. And yet, despite my propensity to vomit at the mere hint of a sentence that screams to be spoken rather than sung, I actively go and see a lot of musicals. And if they are more of a play interspersed with the occasional song, I confess to rather enjoying myself. The latest musical to come my way is the West End and Broadway smash Mamma Mia, a… Continue Reading

Each Day Designed ― A New Diary for Creatives


  Choosing a diary for the year ahead is always tough. Do you want a day to a page or a week to view? Do you need a space to write your goals for the week? Or maybe a little spot for a to-do list? Or maybe you don’t work a regular 9am – 5pm and need a little more? For those working in creative industries juggling multiple jobs while creating work, managing grants and applying for new ones, things can get a little tricky and a traditional diary often won’t cut it. Enter Sydney based start-up each day designed… Continue Reading

Kim Churchill’s Top Ten Albums


  Singer songwriter Kim Churchill is a busy man. Not only is he releasing a new album, he is about to set off on a huge national tour. Weight_Falls, the follow up to Silence/Win, almost didn’t come together. After working on the album for over eighteen months, Churchill decided at the last minute that what he had produced wasn’t quite good enough. He then decided to throw it out and start again. After a hectic week writing followed by a couple of months piecing everything together, Churchill ended up with something adventurous, intuitive and surprising. For lovers of his past… Continue Reading

Playhouse Creatures On The Way to Monaco


  When you buy tickets to see a play, more often than not, you will be seeing a lot more men on stage than women. It’s the same on the screen. Too often the way women are portrayed in culture is a supporting character. Of course, this isn’t always the case (remember how Bridesmaids helped change the perception that films starring all women couldn’t be commercially successful?) but we still have a long way to go before we see women portrayed in our media as they truly are: complex, strong and unique. A Canberra based theatre company is striving to… Continue Reading
