The Stairwell Project POZIBLE Campaign

The Stairwell Project POZIBLE Campaign
The Stairwell Project is driven by the notion and well researched evidence that live music and art is an essential element in the healing process and general well being of patients, staff and public in hospitals and medical centres.

Beginning in mid 2015, despite financial challenges, this little project has flourished and made significant creative ground for it’s capacity The Pozible Campaign outlines the project’s depth and just how much it has delivered in terms of impact over such a short space of time. We need your assistance to continue this beautiful work. Please take a minute to look over the campaign that has been lovingly created by the Stairwell Project team in collaboration with our passionate director Peter Breen.

Jugglers Art Space Inc. invites you to ‘Shadows Beyond Illusion’ – an exhibition with TONY LAMONT. This exhibition of digitial prints uses elements of black and white chest X-rays as a jumping off point for highly coloured abstract images – both meaningful and decorative.

To be meaningful art should give a sense of where an artist is now, where they have been in the past, and a view of the history in which, willingly or otherwise, they have been a part.” – T.Lamont.

Exhibition Opening 6pm – 9pm Friday 5th FEB
Exhibition Duration 3rd FEB – 12th FEB

Optical Awakening by Emma Le Strange

Come on a polymathic journey into an artistic, scientific and cabarific extravaganza!

Emma Le Strange presents “Optical Awakening”, a solo exhibition, where by the white peacock lands and
illuminates your senses through performance and artwork.

The exhibition formally opens on the 2nd of December and runs until the 15th of December at Jugglers
ArtSpace, Fortitude Valley.

The opening night, on Friday the 4th, proves to be one of enlightened entertainment. Optical Awakening
will be officially opened by the Director of the Queensland Cabaret Festival, Alison St Ledger and will see
performances from the artist’s muse and emerging cabaret performer, CeCe Shabam, cabaret aficionado,
Melissa Cloake and Emma Le Strange making her stage debut as Delta de Milo.

Optical Awakening marks the creative polymath emergence of Emma Le Strange. Her art proves to be
one of uniqueness as she forces the age old art forms of drawing and crochet into the contemporary
scene. Emma explains that, “there is no doubt that drawing and crochet are still significant in a
contemporary setting. It is my hope to bring this fact to light in Optical Awakening”.

Optical Awakening, the year long project, has encompassed costuming, fiber optic crochet, photography,
realist drawing, etching, music and cabaret. Emma says “this exhibition is my renewal or even rebirth as I
leave behind personal struggles and embrace my future in contemporary art practices”. Emma has been
over-coming chronic illness since childhood that has resulted in daily, systemic pain, “it is important to
me to show that you are not defined in life by what you can’t do, it is what you can do that is important
and you don’t have to compromise when it comes to achieving your dreams.”

Emma Le Strange has constructed a victorian inspired corset and has adorned the front with crocheted
fiber optic cable. This and a fiber optic peacock tail make up a costume worn by the featured performer,
CeCe Shabam. Cassandra Croucher is a graduate of the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University
and has dedicated many years to her first passion and profession as an educator. In 2014, Cassandra
entered the Brisbane cabaret scene under the stage name of CeCe Shabam and has since created a
variety of characters from the dramatic and dark to the cute and quirky. For Optical Awakening,
Cassandra will create a cabaret performance based around the theme of the white peacock.

Emma Le Strange has worked from photographs of CeCe adorning the peacock costume to create a series
of realist drawings. Half of these drawings are set behind LED lit, etched perspex, turning the drawings
into light boxes.

Emma’s skills go beyond the creative. She has formal qualifications in industrial chemistry and loves to
meld science, engineering and art. Also, in September, Emma received the Access Arts Achievement
Award of $10,000 to write, illustrate and publish a children’s story book in 2016.

If you can’t make it to the opening night of Optical Awakening, don’t fear, the performances will be live
streamed and recorded on Emma Le Strange’s you tube channel and will also be available on “wall” at the
gallery throughout the duration of the exhibition. Visit her website at or
Facebook page at for more details.

Skylark Community Murals Project

An initiative from the young people involved in the Inala Flexi EADP at Jugglers Art Space.

A big shout out to the Inala Flexi Centre and Brisbane City Council for coming together with us to deliver this deadly community development and artistic project in Inala, Brisbane. If your local, go check out the Skylark Street Murals Project.

We see Mother Earth holding and letting us go – she knows Reciprocity –
We watch as she is stood on by men with linear visions of progress since English colonization. Her hair the complex natural ecology of mangrove wetlands holds a story of resilience and connectivity of life and how Aboriginal people have engage and nurtured her life force since time immemorial – We see images and artifacts referencing pre-colonial trade and stories with Chinese Dutch, French, Macassan, Arab, and Portuguese being uncovered by the earth.

We see words being typed coming from the swamps
and land and the leaves – These stories held in the earth are handed down through oral tradition and what we now call art and performance are being written on paper – we honour the power in our stories and ways of telling and finding them – so many that were silenced and lost- So many stories are held in the streets and diverse people of Inala and this is a great local strength. We see the story sent off in a paper plane – a reference to working in the modern context – the stories are making marks and cracks in the concrete walls. The inclusion of the postcode onto the concrete wall shows how locals celebrate Inala and the very strong sense of community connection, belonging and pride The paper story is later caught by Mother Earth again- in a birds nest as time is cyclical and we will return to where we come from – Mother Earth holding and letting us go – she knows Reciprocity.

Project Co-ordinator & Artist: Nina-Rae Smith
Lead Teacher: Jo Campbell
