Thanks to everyone who attended the launching of the book at This Is Not Art Festival in Newcastle! It felt right to be putting the book out into the world first in Newcastle amongst so many good people. Special thanks to Dave Burgess for speaking at the launch, it was an honour to have our favourite graffiti artist and good friend there with us to launch the book.
Also thanks to everyone who came to the MELBOURNE LAUNCH! It was a great night!
Special thanks to Louise Morris, The John Howard Ladies’ Auxiliary Fan Club and the Bella Union Bar at Trades Hall.
We look forward to catching up with everyone at the upcoming launches.
