📅 FRIDAY 10 AUGUST 2018
🕑 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM
📍 ULUMBARRA THEATRE
👤 Sarah Sentilles with Tansy Curtin

At the end of her beautiful book, Draw Your Weapons, Sarah Sentilles writes a one sentence paragraph: "Behold, we are making a new thing." That was a thought that sustained Myuran Sukumaran in his final months, awaiting execution in an Indonesian jail and learning to paint. Tansy Curtin, curatorial manager at Bendigo Art Gallery where the exhibition of Sukumaran's work is on show, talks with Sarah about art as a powerful, and redemptive, response to all that is broken by the violence of war.
