'The News in Brief'...in greater detail:

* Charlie and KAGE (dance-theatre company) recently received a grant from The Abbotsford Convent as part of The Collaborative project. As a result they have produced WildLife - a series of three large-scale colour photographs challenging the body in the natural environment. Exploring issues of gender and equality, proximity and form, Charlie has captured the dynamic tension of Kate and Gerard’s (KAGE principal dancers) intimate movement through the Yarra Bend bushland.

The finished works will be exhibited one at a time from November 8 – December 22 at The Abbotsford Convent, with a new image going up every 2 weeks. For location details and information about the other Collaborative projects (there are 6 in total), download the catalogue.

* In late 2012, early 2013 Charlie's close friend and colleague, Hunter G, crossed the Australian continent to help raise awareness of the serious threat to The Kimberley wilderness region in NW Western Australia. This culminated in an exhibition, The Kimberley - Australia's Threatened Wilderness, at which ex Greens leader and inspiring environmentalist, Bob Brown, gave the closing address. Hunter also kept an entertaining blog which is a combination of Art/Nature/Community and The Absurd. - start here and follow the links at the bottom of each post.

The Kimberley is still under major threat from mining, including Fracking. The Kimberley is one of the last great savannah-style wilderness regions IN THE WORLD! Visit Environs Kimberley and Kimberley Campaigner for background info and simple ideas on how to help. Thanks folks. Keep The Kimberley always in your hearts and minds.
