Are we there yet?

We were pleased to be able to tour Alison Lesterís Are we there yet? Exhibition back to her home territory at the end of April to be part of the Prom Coast Sea Change Festival which ran from April 25 to 29. The Prom Coast Seachange Festival is a biennial festival held in the towns along the Promontory coast in South Gippsland. This is the fourth festival and each has been bigger and better than the last. The festival celebrates all that is great about living on the coast. Where possible it draws on the talents of local artists and musicians and celebrates the region's stunning environment.
The Are we there yet? exhibition will continue to be shown at the Fish Creek Hall through to May 7, 10am to 4pm.
So we if you are in this lovely area of Victoria pop in to see the work of this celebrated local author/illustrator who is currently the Australian Childrenís Laureate. Itís a fabulous exhibition to take the kids to.
Hello! from Australia

From Australia exhibition we first curated for the 2012 Bologna Book Fair has just opened itís fourth showing in South Korea as part of the 6th Nami Island International Childrenís Book Festival from 25 April to 31 May 2013. The Nami Island committee have done a stunning job of adapting this exhibition to fit their venue.

Since this exhibition opening, we have been even more thrilled to hear that the National Library in Soul has received 20 requests for the exhibition and have asked if it can stay in South Korea for next 12 months to cater for at least 10 exhibitions in local cities!  Miss Hyo-jin Lee from the Australia-Korea Foundation, Australian Embassy Seoul, who we have been working with on this exhibition will meet with Tourism and State Offices on how to promote this and Australia to these host cities.
