Spoken-word poet, hip-hop fanatic, MC and author Abraham ‘Abe’ Nouk is the founder and director at Creative Rebellion Youth. Sudanese-born, Abe was illiterate when he and his family arrived in Australia in 2004 as UN High Commission designated refugees. He began reading and writing to improve his lyrical content for hip-hop music when it became apparent to him that ‘the best thing you can do for yourself is to feed your mind.’ Finding his own freedom of speech, Abe went on to win third place in the Australian National Poetry Slam and self-published his first collection of works – HUMBLE – in 2013.
Founder of Make Thrift Creative Services, Sally McKittrick is a shape-shifting “Jill of all trades with a background in community arts participation. Through the culinary arm of her business – Tableaux Food – Sally explores the transformational and healing potential of communal edible experiences that are a feast for the senses. A tableaux is a vivid scene, or group of people. Sally’s seasonal grazing tables celebrate nature’s beauty and abundance, presenting fresh local and foraged produce in a vivid, inviting display that’s (almost) too good to eat!
This drumming style is not for the faint hearted, requiring a commitment to learning parts that played alone may appear simple. The challenge is placing each part within a complex polyrhythmic structure. To truly understand the rhythm and cultural context, the dance and the song must also be learned, or at least engaged with.
