In my normal life I work at Victoria University in their large academic library. I find I am enjoying the responsibility and along with it, the independence of being largely sole charge, with the committee as back up when needed. The points of difference across these two work contexts are interesting. I’ve found myself considering scale and management hierarchies but also how at the heart of both jobs, it is working with and for people that makes us do what we do.
On parting I’d like to say, one thing. Please keep making things. Make paintings. Create crafts. Craft art. I am one of those people who tend to blur the definitions between craft and art as my passion is in the debated area of textiles. But above all else, I ask you to please keep making the KACC community what it is, welcoming. Warm-hearted. And celebrating the wonder of the human capacity for creativity.
