Castlemaine State Festival daring to dream in 2015

I was so lucky to be able to contribute during our uk winter to Castlemaine State Festival curtesy of Jimbelina of belt and braces productions in Victoria Australia.  
Ive been flat out with uk corporate since my return & it's only now I have a chance to catch up mid festival season in a an unexpected break. It's a cracking festival - concentrating on some expectionaly creative contributions & genuinely from around the world, 
my only regret not being able to see too much due to my involvement. I was lucky enough to be involved  with the projection for this production - a magnificent site specific play with a video mapped set on the wall of the exercise yard of the old prison in castlemaine

@mondomixproject a major triumph for small scale producers

What an amazing little festival to get involved with & such inspiring producers prevailing against all odds to deliver quality Ind├ępendant #worldmusic
I'm supremely privelidged to have been invited to contribute here this last week with such a varied line up of such high quality artists all committed 100% to building this event.
I'm back again next year for sure & looking to increase production values even more, to help increase the profile of this sparkling little gem year on year. Well done @rhythmtreeinfo #standyourground #becausewecan

Project Fling takes on a life of its own - mondo mix bound

Due the astounding successes of last weeks mentoring project @flingfestival the project has taken on a life of its own & now #projectfling is working on transporting to @mondomixproject to help out there. What an outstanding & heartening response from a project pulled together on a whim by @culteventsteam. The project has outstripped all our expectations & certainly, for me, demonstrated how with a little effort we can sew a fresh creative seed. I can't wait to see what happens after this next adventure. ­čśâ

The Mondo Mix next in line for Astral treatment

great excitement no we are back at astral Acres turning round @flingfestival ready for @mondoMixProject on the beautiful isle of white http://mondomix.uk/tickets.html
