|Speaking at the Climarte forum: are solar panels |
available for foreheads?
Organised by Climarte, the forum was organised to examine the role of fine arts in overcoming the environmental crisis. My lecture was specifically about the ethics of art and climate change: what ought artists do? What, if anything, can we ask of them? What can be asked of us?
I'm happy to say that the Deakin Edge theatre was full, with some in the aisles. And there were some good questions and comments, including a nod to the excellent Marxist geographer, David Harvey.

I was on the ABC again on Friday and Tuesday, talking about How to Think About Exercise. (It was also excerpted in The Guardian.)
My first gig was with Phil Kafcaloudes, on Radio Australia's 'Breakfast' program, and we had a good yak -- not only about my book, but about the whole School of Life How to... series

|Signing subtly coloured books|
(If you're overseas or interstate, you can tweet me for a signed bookplate -- I'll post it to you.)
Speaking of bookshops, here's the poster for My Nanna is a Ninja, out in late February. It's on the wall at Readings Hawthorn. As you can see, illustrator Peter Carnavas has done a brilliant job. I'll be doing some readings to kids at Readings Carlton and elsewhere -- check my 'events' noticeboard (on the sidebar) for details.
