GC Word on the Street #49

The coast is packed with spaces for socialisation, training and creative expression. Every hobby and interest is covered, from skateboarding to life drawing, and even spiritual healing. Not your thing? Hop down to a local gig for some sound healing instead.

Food Truck Picnic | Laguna Park

A day packed with live music, gourmet food trucks and cultural activities, Food Truck Picnic provides the perfect blend of relaxation and socialisation. Relax under a shady tree or taste your way across the green. An affair with sweet tunes and food.

Life Drawing Sessions | Left Bank Gallery

Bring materials and refreshments, life model and nibbles provided.

I’m a creative-visualist that loves bees, beers and devouring well-written books. A 70s babe, born in the 90s. I appreciate marmalade skies, write poems exploring female sexuality and equality and walk barefoot along off-beaten tracks. You’ll find me searching through vintage stalls, staring at obscure art, helping out at local markets, crowd surfing at live music events and sampling every acai the coast has to offer. As a certified Nutritional Therapist, I advocate sustainable living in the sun, the salt and the studio, a statue in Warrior II.
