Tickets now on sale for Barry Jones & Friends Celebrate the Arts
3pm Sunday 11 October
The October birthday of one of Australia’s most remarkable men, Barry Jones AC, has become an annual opportunity for us to celebrate his love of the Arts with an evening of poetry and music. As we’re unable to gather together in person, this year’s celebration will be a live Zoom event in the afternoon. At 3pm, Sunday 11 October, our Fragments online series (the banner under which we’ve created our successful first online exhibition) will be expanded to include this live event curated and hosted by board member Julian Burnside AO.
We’re excited to announce this year’s program will include a performance by Australian singer-songwriter, Paul Kelly. He will be joined by a superb line up of readers including Julian Burnside, Max Gillies, Emily Goddard, Jillian Murray, Brian Walters and Arnold Zable, and a performance by Flinders Quartet cellist, Zoe Knighton.
We hope that you can join Barry online on Sunday 11 October from 3pm. Perhaps bring something to drink and a nibble so that we can celebrate a very special 88th birthday together!
