Non-profit organization PangeaSeed Foundation is continuing their worthy cause to harness the power of art, science and creativity to generate awareness, stimulate dialogue, change perception, and inspire positive change around pressing ocean environmental issues. Their newest edition of Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans, which focus on overfishing, plastics and pollution, global climate change and habitat loss through production of large-scale murals, will be taking place from March 11-20, 2016, in New Zealand.

For this event 29 renowned contemporary artists from across the world and New Zealand will beautify Napier’s streetscape and highlight marine environmental issues relevant to the local community. Bringing this unique project to the home to numerous endangered endemic species of flora and fauna both on land and in the ocean, the mural painting will be accompanied by educational field excursions and cultural tours for the artists, a public art exhibition, film screenings, and live art demonstrations. The list of participating artists include Aaron Glasson, Askew, Cinzah, Dirty Bandits, Faith47,  Jason Botkin, Meggs, Phibs, Twoone and many more.

Just Another Agency… Just Another Interview?

This is not Just Another Interview.  This is an interview with Toby, head honcho of ‘Just Another Agency’.  I have been lucky enough to hang out with Toby a few times and she is the hardest working person I have ever met!  The scene in Melbourne would not be where it is without her contribution.  Toby does. not. stop!  A ‘mum’ to almost 40 artists (and a ring-in VNA contributor), Toby kindly made some time to chat….

DW:  How did ‘Just Another Agency’ (JAA) come to exist?

JAT:  Upon moving to Melbourne from Perth in 2007 my partner and I at the time were looking for somewhere to live and we came across what I like to describe as “a squatters hole”. It was a 2 storey building containing three rooms downstairs and four rooms upstairs along with an amazing outdoor space. When we moved into it however there was no flushing toilet or electricity upstairs. However it very quickly became home. Once moving in everything else just happened. We turned the downstairs rooms into a shop front and gallery along with an outdoor exhibition space and started supporting emerging and established local, national and international artists. Located at 696 Sydney Road, Brunswick (Victoria, Australia) we only found it fitting to call the space ‘696’. However after running the gallery for three years, we decided to close taking what we loved from the space and transforming that into the agency.  Just like that, ‘Just Another ‘was born.
