A story that is timely, inspirational and has local news power is always a winning combination for any #publicist to pitch to media. 🌟
Just over a year ago, Samantha Fry @sammyzart received the news that she was successful in her application for an Australian indigenous Creator Scholarship and ever since has dedicated much of her time to perfecting her illustrations with pencil and watercolour. Seriously, check her work out #supertalented ! 🌟
The hard work has finally paid off and her illustrations have been published in children's book, #Alfred ’s War, released by @magabalabooks. A moving tribute of the sacrifice and courage of Aboriginal Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander serviceman and the lack of recognition and support they received on their return home. 🌟
Thank you to NT News for putting the wonderful @sammyzart on the front page of the @thentnews Sun liftout and sharing the wonderful story of a talented, Australian illustrator whose career has only just begun. You can read the full article in the link in my bio! .

Residency 3 of the Write Sparks course at Jute Theatre. Learning how to be a Playwright and write a play ... it’s be really hard but finally this weekend has bought some clarity and my play is beginning to take shape! So excited! Just gotta fight off the remainder of this flu and get writing after this weekend! #writesparks#playwright#cairns#torresstraitislander#muycreative1
“Mura Buai” which means ‘Everyone, Everyone’ is a ‘game’ of performance.
In Sydney, we played on a concrete floor in an industrial building in the Carriage Works. Today we play outside on the sand circle here for the Comm Games Festival of 2018.
Sometimes this game has been played for three hours non-stop, but we won’t be playing that hard today. With so many other deadly events happening around here, you’ll get half the fun with our 1hr and a half game.
There are seven players, a mix of Torres Strait Islander, Aboriginal and non-indigenous Australian backgrounds. Conceived and directed by Ghenoa Gela and Danielle Micich this work uses stories and movement inspired by traditional Torres Strait Islander dance practice as well as modern dance and sport. It has fifteen rounds all up and has a variety of rules within them! Hope you enjoy the show! Let the games begin!!🤩

KR’s Reconciliation group artwork made with native Australian plants and pieces. The class chose to send the message ‘sorry’ and I bossed them around to set it up nicely! Then they let loose with some team pictures! 🐞🌿🐚
