The Rebus Team is delighted to announce the PROJECT ALCHEMY ARTISTS!
Please give a warm welcome to Sue Norman (Artist/Writer/Radio Producer) who will be delivering an artist led bushfire project in Bega Valley Shire.
Sue Norman lives at the edge of the forest in Kiah. Her partner, Mick, saved the old timber house from the 2020 fire by turning on the spray system then sheltering in the bunker. They now watch the forest going through the process of healing; seeing the struggle for balance as the world warms.
Over the years Sue has enjoyed working as an artist, a teacher, a radio producer, a writer, a gardener and historian. She has always worked at helping people to find their voice.
“When I was at high school I read a DH Lawrence poem about how we should be like birds and live fully as ourselves- as humans,” said Sue. “I love birds.”
“As an artist I learned to trust my instincts and be open to life around me. It’s an attitude you can bring to anything you do.”
More information on artists in Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council to come to you in the following weeks. Or if you want to check out all the artists now, head to the website: https://rebustheatre.com/our-project-alchemy-artists/
Project Alchemy is made possible thanks to funding from the Australian Government for the Black Summer Bushfire Grant Program.
Rebus is also supported by Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres and the ACT Government.
