I am in Perth, Western Australia. I work across all age and cultural groups.

I am an artist that works from an educational platform.

Over many years I have been exploring many varied ways of using the
arts in just as many different environments.

More recently I have had the pleasure in working with a youth
performing group who have been working with youth to empower, train,
develop through the arts. This is where I want to explore the use of
puppetools over the next 7 weeks.

Presently I am especially interested in using puppets, storytelling and
the creative process (focused play) to spread a new paradigm of
'sustainable development'.

What I found so wonderful about your site was your level of development
already in some of these directions.

Especially the creative sharing and networking, which the arts
industries over the past decades have not been willing, in general to
participate in.

Second it is really great to know there is someone creative, like you,
out there that someone like me, who, one, is wanting to network with
other creative people. Secondly to help build a bridge to span the
isolation of living here.

The other thing I really liked about your web site was the lack of
creative elitism. So many of my fellow artists have fallen for this
trap and been sterilised and disconnected in the process.

So I will continue to read the wonderful material in your site. I will also let others know about it and see if we can just get a little closer to improving the world we are leaving behind for the next generation of children.

Thanking you again,

Terri Turner
