What would you do differently to what you do now?
I started my career as a practicing artist and have tried to obtain an undergraduate degree, but failed and then later started a post-graduate degree, but failed again. I need to stop feeling guilty about lacking traditional education and continue to learn differently.
Who inspires you and why?
I like being around creatives that push thinking and push me into complex places that I naturally would not venture into.
What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Run for politics.
Favourite holiday destination and why?
Anywhere with my family and no mobile reception.
When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
El Jannah, Granville – once you have tried it you will understand why.
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently listening to the audiobook, New Dark Age by James Bridle.
What are you currently listening to?
Igor by Tyler the Creator.
Sipping Japanese whisky
What does the future hold for you?
We have major plans to expand Campbelltown Arts Centre to incorporate a new theatre, gallery spaces, artists’ studios and rehearsal space. This development may be some time off but once complete will meet the needs of the growing community.
Michael is the Director of Campbelltown Arts Centre – who will present the exhibitions, Marama Dina | Yirran Miigaydhu from 17 August – 13 October 2019. For more information, visit: www.c-a-c.com.au for details.
