Wild Tongue Vol. 2 – How Should an Artist Be?
Timmah Ball, Azja Kulpińska
Auslan-interpreted 9 & 19 May
Upholding its agenda to disrupt prevailing narratives, Azja Kulpińska and Timmah Ball’s zine, Wild Tongue, now turns its attention to the struggles, joys and privileges of life as a creative practitioner. Through public zine-making workshops and a series of robust discussions, Azja and Timmah tackle the prickly issues faced by creatives: from navigating backstage politics to learning how to make a living from art.
Expect open dialogues about racism, ableism, misogyny, transphobia, queerphobia, unacknowledged class privilege and an understanding of their influence on mental health. Discussions and workshops are open to all. The zine will officially launch on 19 May.
Wild Tongue Zine is independently published and edited by Timmah Ball and Azja Kulpińska with curatorial and production support from Linh Thùy Nguyễn. Featuring local and international artists, writers and creative practitioners such as: Linh Thùy Nguyễn, Phuong Ngo, ReVerse Butcher, Lian Low, Tresa LeClerc, Andy Butler, Hella Ibrahim, Otter Lieffe, Sweatshop Collective and more!
Wild Tongue Vol. 2 – How Should an Artist Be? is supported by City of Melbourne and Create NSW.
