On Saturday I left Melbourne with 8 photobooks and I returned that evening with 16! It was such a pleasure to launch the 16 photobooks in Sydney and celebrate the wonderful work of Margret, Sione, Lyric, Pel, Jahnai, Keelin, Analine and Donita. Family and friends from all over Sydney (and even Canberra) came out to support these young artists. We danced, ate and celebrated their achievements with some awesome island kai and entertainment provided by Tropical Island Hula. Well done to everyone involved in the Sydney workshops, Thelma Thomas-Lesianawai, Salote Tawale, Donita Hulme, Michelle Lackenby and Daniel Boetker-Smith. A special shout out to Morgan and the team at Information Cultural Exchange, who were the perfect hosts for our project - always supportive, welcoming and fantastic facilities. Vinaka vakalevu, Torika.
