Lindsay’s ‘Instagram Live’ series:
Events for adults and children to stay connected to each other, and the world, during lockdown
A series of live online events created especially for our readers in Melbourne, or anywhere in the world, who are in lockdown. We hope that each of these candid ‘Instagram Live’ events offers an opportunity to connect with one another and the world. They are all free, none require bookings. Just save the date and click our Instagram profile photo at the time of the event. If you can’t join in at the time of the live recording, each event will remain on our Instagram profile for the following 24 hours.
Stories of Dreaming with Dunghutti Dad Josh Smith

Art, Process and the Creation of Home with Reading Room

Reading Murakami on Screen with Anna Snoekstra & Katherine Brabon
Tuesday 8 September, 8pm AEST
For this book and film club (in one), read Haruki Murakami’s Barn Burning, a sizzling tale of mystery and metaphor penned as a short story in 1980s Japan and adapted to the screen thirty years later in South Korea. Read the story here, listen to the audio here, or watch the film ‘Burning’ (available on SBS On Demand) before we join two local novelists to discuss.

Make a Treasure Map of Your Own Neighbourhood with Alice Oehr
Saturday 12 September, 2pm AEST
This is a wonderful opportunity for children (and adults) to make their very own treasure map drawing on inspiration from their own neighbourhood. Please note that Alice will record a short introduction video on the Friday afternoon before. Watch this anytime before the drawing class on the Saturday, so you know what to do on your neighbourhood walk before class.
