Hello and welcome to part two of our three part Gathering series! This one is a live recording of the second panel from this event, held in Orange back in May. The theme was community, collaboration and building connections and our panel was moderated by Barbara Sweeney.
This is a very honest, funny and helpful chat about being creative, being a parent, being vulnerable, being a breadwinner and building connections and communities that sustain us.
And because this was a live recording, there are few sound hiccups along the way for which I apologise but encourage you guys to ignore because they aren’t worth worrying about and last only a couple of minutes at the most.
