Far-famed city of Melbourne, installation view
Ekphrasis writing and the creative spirit of art and literacy: A collaborative outcome with the Melbourne Graduate School of Education students and the Potter.
Keenly interested in the creative writing process as a means to understanding our world, and imparting these skill to secondary students, three Melbourne Masters of Teaching students will discuss their practice along a writing workshop at The Potter before reading poems in response to Tim Jones’ sculpture Covert 7 city, 1988.
Pat Bruce is engaged with songwriting in his spare time, as well as some voluntary journalism, and has been known to dabble in poetry on occasion.
Hagan Mathews is a musician, writer and teacher in training. He is a former editor of Farrago student magazine and currently works as enrolments and marketing coordinator at Alia College.
Philip Thiel is a blogger who has worked for the University of Melbourne, Museum Victoria and the Uniting Church.
No bookings required.

Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
