Townsville Artist Stories, part 1: Emile Griffiths, Dr. Barbara Cheshire & Kayta Venter
Artgaze Magazine are proud to be collaborating with Townsville Artist Stories, to republish nine video interviews of artists local to Townsville, North Queensland. The project is the brain child of writer, educator and curator, Alex Christopher, funded by Townsville City Council and Arts Queensland through the Regional Arts Development Fund. The films were recorded and edited by Mia Peronis of Eyeswide Imaging.
We hope you enjoy hearing these inspirational and driven artists share from their hearts!
