Imagined poem about two sisters cleaning a house and grieving with coffee, inspired by Fiona Smith’s painting. A memorable collaboration!
I have started a new job in Brisbane, so will not be at the opening night on August 3rd but would love to hear of anyone in the Bendigo region who can attend – or makes the drive from Melbourne to one of Victoria’s most beautiful cities!
