FYI - info reposted here from NAVA and Links, as a long term member of and advocate for NAVA since my involvement in Brisbane Meeanjin SEQ /Queensland/Australian ARIs in Brisbane in the 1980s please consider joining NAVA as an artist member as reviving is surviving and thriving...and we look forward to the budget announcements in May 2023 to learn more about this proposed change process afoot...

Revive: National Cultural Policy – a Visual Arts Perspective

Launched on Monday 30 January, the National Cultural Policy ‘Revive: a place for every story, a story for every place’ marks a significant turning point for Australia’s arts and culture. The policy makes a powerful statement about the strength and vibrancy of our cultural sector, its importance to the wellbeing of all Australians and relevance across all areas of government.

Revive is backed by additional funding of $286 million over four years from 2023-24 – restoring the money slashed by the former Coalition Government. NAVA welcomes the new Revive policy’s commitment to reversing the arts funding cuts and looks forward to more clarity in the financial details expected in the May 2023 budget.

Importantly, the new policy’s endorsement of NAVA’s voluntary Code of Practice for Visual Arts, Craft and Design is a win for our sector. Mandating the Code in its entirety would have been better but this is a great start.

The policy also outlines the government’s plans to include Award coverage of the arts sector and minimum standards as part of the upcoming Review of Modern Awards. While the policy falls short of answering the call of over 7,200 visual arts, craft and design practitioners who signed for the expanded recognition of art as work through an industrial Award, NAVA looks forward to working closely with the Government to create Award coverage for artists and arts workers to ensure enforceable minimum employment and payment standards.

Happy Lunar New Year 2023📽☎️💖💗 I wish you good health and happiness in the upcoming year. This zine [draft, with a few more slides to add] is about Hiram To at John Mills National, an artist-run space in Brisbane 1986-1987 located at 40 Charlotte Street. John Mills Annexe, at the time - which showed artist slides and small art works - was the smallest artist-run space in Australia. It was a safe place where Hiram, among many others, refused to be invisible.

Hiram was an exceptional artist but I always felt that he was never properly understood by other artists and critics. He was aware of that himself cf. "Please don't let me be misunderstood". I wonder whether that was due to the wide number of influences on his art from his Aberdeen Scottish art school and his feeling for UK culture, to his roots in Honkers, to his appraisal of contemporary popular culture in Australia and elsewhere. not to mention cake decoration !! And not least the issue of being that rare thing in those days... a Chinese artist in Australia... and his own musings (doubts/ conflicts???) about his ethnicity which were never spoken out aloud. I found his work very tough to fully comprehend especially as he was hmself reticent to talk about it in detail, just assuming that his viewers would grasp the issue by osmosis as it were. He had one Canadian theorist... sorry forget her name and she was the only one really that got to grips with what he was doing.

He was very old-style "English" in so many ways.. gentlemanly, reticent, dislike of unseemly behaviour, refined taste... could be one key to his work

Thanks dear Luke, so timely to resituate the democratic foundations of the IMA - so long ago now - and to acknowledge the persistent and ongoing efforts of local queer artists in a state where queer lags behind in traditional, mainstream institutional settings...thanks again for your critical perspective in this process of vigil and the troubling of dominant and oppressive paradigms. On the cusp of the IMA 50th anniversary in 2025 hopefully their archives and approaches will once again best reflect localised grassroots community-based democratic and participatory principles into futurity :

Saturday 10th December 2022 4pm - 9pm

Catch the HMAS Croqland as it travels from Wooloongabba through the burbs... Kangaroo Pt, Story Bridge, Fortitude Valley, Bowen Hills, Clayfield, Nundah, Virginia, Nudgee, Boondall, Deagon, Sandgate, Shorncliffe and onto the Hornibrook Highway to Redcliffe...

Departing Wooloongabba 12.45pm

eta BOOT ART 4 ... test run 4 3.00pm ish...

Walter Stahl

"The HMAS Croqland is part of the Croqland Suite of works referencing the Jungian shadow of Australia, the nation state. Aesthetically, it mixes dystopian/horror movie (ZombieCroc, Mad Max) with rusting, rustic weathered outback nostalgia, cheap and trashy DIY recycled arte povera and model-kit toy diorama.

HMAS Croqland is a psycho-emotional, surreal, cliched reflection of the Nation state of [white] Australia, as it presents itself to itself, seen through my politicised, culturally analytical German-conditioned mind, and the lens of my anthropologist interests and training. Containing a carefully curated/crafted mix of visual symbols, and emotional triggers, pointing to tropes and narratives that – Croqland[ers] tell each other about themselves and their own national, cultural identity; - visual cues that represent core historical & political & philosophical truths about Croqland, - and the vibe for export."

And so HMAS Croqland... travels to Redcliffe...

Catch the journey and the destination...

so much to remember, so much to love

It hurts to think of it demolished. Somehow it was a subversive secret. Makes a mockery of overpriced soulless accommodation. A gift of love and beauty to the like-minded that recognised and cherished it.

Dearest Marshall... can't believe the chalets have gone !!

It was a truly memorable & accepting space - a wonderland of kitsch glory. I've never found anywhere in Qld that compared in design, or the warmth imbued by Marshall & Colin but I'm sure there were others that met the same fate decades before I arrived. What lovely men with a wonderfully ecclectic attitude to the gathering & preservation of ephemera & parts of other once loved island buildings. I wish it was still here. We can all name haunts; once majestic homes bulging with creative activity; & venues, hotels, warehouses, galleries & inner city studios etc that met that fate. The attitude of the ruling culture towards history (pre & post invasion) bewildered me. People complained about a lack of history despite being surrounded by it. The answer to 12 yr old me seemed simple - stop employing the Dean bros. It would have been a timely solution. I still ponder the Qld that could have been had many buildings remained & sites respected. Most of my old watering holes are gone. I miss so much of their character - from plaster work to fireplaces; rooftops & long verandas; humid nights, cool breezes & cold drinks; creaking elevators; features from the 1870's through to the Target building's space age appeal of primary colours & plastic bubbles; creativity driven by passion & sometimes high youth unemployment...& occasional table top dancing. It's a long list of missed buildings. I keep promising to contribute content Paul. The digitising will eventually happen. I'll likely find some surprising gems & hopefully some from my summer in the Chalets. Fun times.

And if anyone is keen to write a little story about this fabulous queer artist-run place with some photos this is the new community archives zine anthology we are making this year and next of you would like to contribute : ) remix.org.au/extrazine
