In conversation with photographer Katrin Koenning

Meeting up with Melbourne-based artist Katrin Koenning this afternoon to learn about her new photographic series, The Crossing, currently showing at the Australian Centre for Photography as part of the group show Transfer (16 April - 15 May). "The Crossing is concerned with the human impact on ecology. As short-term economic growth continues to take precedent over ongoing environmental and wildlife concerns, Koenning reflects on nature’s current state of uncertainty through her poetical and ethereal imagery".

Katrin also has a fair few Instagram followers - incredible feed.

Monday 18th November - Creative Partnership Awards 2013

Hosted the Creative Partnership Awards 2013 – on Monday 18th November at Parliament House, Canberra, which recognise successful relationships between business and creative industries - many exploring alternate funding models to enable creative projects to happen. Many of the winners also used the platform to call for greater culture of giving towards the arts in Australia, which is seriously lacking here in comparison to our American counterparts.

In Australia - it's still the case that the more you earn, the less you give. So it was refreshing to hear from one the winner of the Creative Partnerships Philanthropy Leadership Award, Betty Amsden OAM - a big arts donor in this country, strongly arguing for a rise in philanthropy from those that have the means. It was an  inspiring speech - made me forget for a moment how sore my feet were from standing on stage for hours!
