Making Space II: Caught on the brim

  • 107 Projects 107 Redfern Street Redfern, NSW, 2016 Australia (map)

This conversation brings together milliner Rosie Boylan and drummer Simon Barker with museum curator Jude Philp to discuss the art of translating knowledge and experiences into creative outlets and social enterprise. Rosie and Simon work within their own fields making space for global thinking through skill sharing and cross-cultural collaborations to amplify marginalised voices and draw focus to the unobserved.

Post conversation, there will be a bespoke experimental music performance by Kraig Grady + Terumi Narushima (Clocks and Clouds) curated by E M U S (Exploratory Music Sydney) an organisation promoting improvised, exploratory, experimental music and sound art in Sydney and its surrounds.

The Speakers
- Rosie Boylan is a renowned milliner whose career has seen her create - headwear for stage and screen for almost thirty years.
- Simon Barker is a drummer and Senior Lecturer in Jazz at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
- Jude Philp is senior curator of the Macleay Museum.

The Sound Artist
Kraig Grady composes almost exclusively for acoustic instruments of his own making or modification tuned to just intonation in order to reflect the natural properties of sound.

About the Making Space Series
Making Space is the latest public program from the Sydney Environment Institute, and this time, we’ve added a twist. This off-campus series partners with 107 Projects to explore questions of evolution and creativity in uncertain times, by throwing together unlikely bedfellows to recraft and react though conversation, performance, improvisation and collaboration.
