Master Weaver

What began as a handful of local women coming together to preserve the heritage and tradition of Ikat weaving, has grown into a social enterprise.


As public opinion in Australia moves towards protecting native forests, the Tasmanian state government continues moving in the other direction.

The Crosshairs

In the eastern part of the occupied West Bank, Israel is quietly carrying out a campaign to remove Palestinian communities from land it seeks to acquire.

Selected photos from around the world

An Israeli parades the national flag in front of Palestinian neighbourhoods in occupied east Jerusalem; a Hamar woman describes the ornamnets around her neck that reveal she is a second class citizen; and a salt-miner walks across the Danakil Depression with slabs of salt on the back of camels; welcome to the big wide world.

This website is evolving and will continue to evolve over the next few years into a space featuring creators, thinkers and organisations that stand for something bigger than themselves. The cover story on Alfonsa Horeng was the first in a series on brilliant craftspeople who are not only masters in their field, they are also guided by a deep social motive with a compelling story to tell. Bob Brown was the first in a series where I chat with exceptional people who have overcome unique challenges to become hugely influential in their field. My piece on the threat to Australia’s native wilderness in north-west Tasmania was the second in a series of feature-length pieces covering issues that need more attention. Over the next few years I’ll use this space as a bridge to connect with brilliant minds, organisations and subjects that interest and inspire me. Hopefully it inspires you too.
