November 22, 2017 Stairwell Project team member Ian Ahles [ Classical Guitar] with bone marrow recipient patient, Jim Usher in ward 5C, Royal Brisbane and Womens Hospital [ RBWH] Cancer Care Services [Haematology]. 

The little but big idea that live music performed in the open spaces and wards of a large city hospital is a positive factor in raising staff morale, improving patient recovery and reducing health care costs is gaining momentum. Documented international research is finding traction in policy and funding development while in Australia via a range of new ventures such as   The Hush Foundation  where live music in all kinds of combinations is  being slowly introduced onto hospital campuses. The Stairwell Projects pilot project in Cancer Care Services at RBWH was part of this evolution of new aspects of health care at the RBWH from November 2017 January 2018. We were invited by the RBWH Cancer Care Ser...

Recorded at the Mansfield Tavern, Brisbane, 23rd December 2017

Awww, a SpotMini using its face-arm to help a buddy...adorable!

Now, its starting to get a bit frustrating that every new Boston Dynamics video makes the Internet blow up with OMG-ROBOTS-ARE-GOING-TO-KILL-US  headlines and tweets. Perhaps Boston Dynamics could release some behind-the-scenes footage (or outtakes!) to show whats going on here? Theres an appearance of autonomy, and if its actually autonomous, BD should say so, but if its remote controlled by a human, they should make that clear. A bit more context for thes...

All that Glitters "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

glitterfestivalgoldcoastGlitter Festival is a spectacular four-day arts event that recognises and celebrates diversity and encourages freedom of expression. Brad Rush is the artistic director, and he spoke to The Echo about this exciting new event that is now in its second year.

First of all, congratulations, the program looks fantastic! What do you look for when you are programming?

Its important to create experiences that speak to a broad section of the community. It is also important for Glitter to create events and present performances that cross over to mainstream.

What was the inspiration for the Glitter Festival on the GC?

The LGBTIQP+ community doesnt have an obvious presence on the Gold Coast. Previous social groups and activities have struggled for support.

In context of arts the community has the opportunity to come together to share some great creative and social projects.

What do you think the special moments are going to be this year?

Anthony Callea tickets selling really fast.

Particularly proud of Brown Sugar, which brings together our first national community.

How do you plan to grow the event?

The event will grow through community support. Look forward to attracting more participation from the drive market.

Gold Coast is great destination and has terrific tourism opportunity.

How did you find yourself working in the arts? 

Been part of my world from very early age. Im performer, musician and kinda stuck into my DNA.

I love that I can continue that passion from various angles. I really like what I get to do!

What is the show that made the biggest impact on you as a young man?

Wow thats a good question.

Im a hopeless musical-theatre boy.

What was most impacting was going to shows with my mum and nana. They were both provided very good foundation and creative support. Gave me an appetite.

Probably was old school My Fair Lady, Merry Widow but it was moreso the whole experience including sharing with Mum and Nana.

Wrap-up: Peaks to Points 2016 "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

Festival Report now available: Click here to download

The Peaks to Points festival finished in style, with around 2000 people enjoying the winter sunshine at the Oxley Creek Common for Festival Family Day presented by Brisbane MarketPlace.
Children enjoyed the farm animals, dancing, theatre, gardening, insect displays, craft activities, face painting and games. Meanwhile, parents relaxed in the sun, listening to the sounds of Diddly Squat and enjoying the many displays by environment and community groups, and the delicious food available. Brisbane Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, officially opened the day and took the opportunity to meet many of the groups and visitors.

Events in the first week of Peaks to Points included platypus spotting (unfortunately without success) bird watching walks, guided bushwalks through forests and conservation areas, walking tours of areas under restoration,  a history walk, tours of the Greenbank Military Training area and the Oxley Sewage Treatment Plant, a nature journaling workshop, and opening of the Cornerstone Community Garden.

The second week saw more birdwatching and bush walks, a tour of the Rochedale Landfill, celebrations of Oxley Creek Catchment Associations 20th anniversary, 20 years of the Norman Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee, and 5 years of the Oxley Mens Shed, plantings for National Tree Day at four sites, workshops about the Common Myna bird, composting, pond gardening, sub-tropical gardening, and keeping native stingless bees, and a forum on the problems of plastics in the environment.

The festival is only made possible by the support of our sponsors: the Brisbane City Council (major supporter), Brisbane MarketPlace, Lend Lease, Ipswich City Council, 7 News Brisbane, Bmag and 4ZZZ.

We look forward to bringing you another action-packed festival program in 2018. Until then, get out and about and enjoy all that our local environment has to offer from the Peaksto the Points!

A diverse, positive country is a strong country "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

If you ever need a clear, succinct outline of just how crucial migration and multiculturalism has been to Australias success and just how damaging it has been when the country has succumbed to divisive leadership that sought to cause division by attacking this read George Megalogenis book Australias Second Chance.

The potential for the final few weeks of the campaign to be filled with slurs against migrants and refugees is strong, so there are a series of events being held across Brisbane to help give people the facts they need to fight back against racism and xenophobia and to show what a better society can look like.

With nominations for the Senate in Queensland now closed, we see a host of parties and candidates running with a strong focus on attacking and vilifying sections of our community whether it be against refugees, migrants, Muslims, multiculturalism, gays and lesbians or First Nations people. At least six parties fall into this category, including Pauline Hanson, who has a real chance of winning. The Greens also have a good chance of winning that final Senate seat, which would be a seat currently held by the conservative side.

I strongly believe that multiculturalism makes us stronger, safer, happier and more prosperous. In this election weve seen slurs against migrants and refugees fly freely including most tragically by the Immigration Minister, who even more tragically was then backed up by our nations Prime Minister!

This year, Brisbane has been at the forefront of the change seen in the national debate about refugees, with the Sanctuary movement gaining momentum in many local churches, and the amazing response to Baby Ashas plight in the Lady Cilento Childrens Hospital. This is the community that I am proud to promote and be a part of.

The events being planned will be sort of like speed-dating with a social conscience. People will get to share in a series of fifteen minute conversations with speakers from migrant and refugee backgrounds, then advocates and academics, then activists. Youll get all the personal stories, facts and figures you need and some concrete ways to stand up for our strong, healthy, diverse society in the last weeks of this election campaign and beyond.

Come to one these four events in the coming weeks, and tell your friends and family about them.

Event 1

Dr Kristen Lyons will be co-hosting
Monday 13th June 2-4pm
Annerley Bowls Club
104 Frederick St, Annerley

Performances by the Tichawona and Velvet duo
