Thanks for having me -#MusicCitiesChengdu! It’s was wonderful to meet music advocates & city champions from all over the world, especially this wonderful crew from Denver, Cardiff, Vancouver & Melbourne, to talk about the challenges we all face & the great things everyone is going to support creative, inclusive cities.

This morning I saw two women in aprons playing badminton on a busy street corner, and then drove past this magic. Having a big #publicspacelove moment in #Chengdu rnnnn

An epic day in an epic city: Chongqing highlights included visiting #Testbed2, a 30,000m2 creative precinct built through adaptive reuse of CQ’s industrial past, thanks to artistic director Yizhong Chen for the tour! Then a walk up the ancient, restored Mountain City Alley with CQ chief planner Mr Yu (aka my new CQ PT @hillthalisaup) including glimpses of the Ming era city walls aaaaand a metro line running through apartment buildings (!?!). Next, to Huangjueping for a visit to the Dimensions Art Center, a social-practice focused ARI & studios… followed by official diplomatic meetings with the CQ govt & Aus consul general. Now, back to Chengdu on the high speed train! Whatta day! CQ, I’ll be back!

I’m going to Chengdu & Chongqing tomorrow (!!!) for the #MusicCitiesChengdu conference! Anyone have any city, creative hotspot, architecture or nightlife tips for either city?

What a rudderly great time! Happy birthday @sowonja and thanks @cassscullyflorist & the most ship-shape band of rogues to ever take to the high seas of Katoomba. I’m still singing! #smoothsailing #yachtrockrevue

Yesterday I married my ultimate sweetheart Pat Armstrong aka @poisontofu in a slightly sneaky secret wedding, and it was just magic. Promise we’ll have a party soon. Meanwhile, thank you to @bloommountainsdesigns @cassscullyflorist for the most magnificent flowers, @garybigeni for the spectacular spots, @daniel.boud for these stunning photos, @weddingsbytania for the hair & make up, and all our fam for the help (look at how many new sisters I have! This just keeps getting better). Turns out, love is real, and it *is* everything it’s cracked up to be.

“Advertisers: your path to profit is built on a platform of hate,” Greens Senator Mehreen Faruqi said today. We were protesting at News Corp’s advertisers pitch convention, ironically called “Come Together”, because their hateful messaging is having real world repercussions. Last year The Australian. Daily Tele & Courier Mail published ~3000 articles denigrating Muslims, but they’re not alone: the ABC gives a platform to hate, not to mention SkyNews. Thanks to Alex McKinnon for bringing us together: a small action for now, the momentum will build #stopfundinghate

Still thinking about this lovely, fragrant, disturbing work by @anna_may_kirk, which I got to experience @pact_sydney Salon on Saturday… Sleeper (Asystasia gangetica) gives us a sense of what the Australian bush will smell like in the future, as climate change accelerates the flourishing of introduced species, at the expense of native wildlife.

The KIDS! They really brought it today. I’ve been to a *lot* of rallies and #climatestrike was honestly the largest I’ve seen, articulating some of the clearest demands I’ve heard at a protest. Honoured to be there with some top notch oldies including @alexgreenwich & @annarose3317, & to hear from honorary youth leader @clovermoore

So great to be at the launch of #ChoiceWords on the same day the ALP announced a rational, national abortion policy. Big congrats to editor @louiseswinn & publisher @kellyafagan (who I am squeezing here) & all the contributors – lovely to meet some of you today.

Read the room, Chris: B’roo Star Casino Overdevelopment of Cockle Bay Demolishing Sirius Demolishing Bidura None of these are great ideas. Almost every so-called “State Significant Development” has bent the rules and blighted our public realm for the profit of your developer mates. We say no. We’re proud to fight against them & Waterloo is no exception.

The fiendishly good @mixtapemarkets is happening this Saturday! I scored some primo 80s & 90s pieces last time: if you like your music & fashion loud, you’ll love it. It’s going down at Marrickville PCYC this Saturday March 9

“The puzzle of who killed me lies at the heart of this city. If you could solve that puzzle, you could save this city from itself.” Just caught the *final day* on #TheBeehive by @zannybegg – a beautiful, enraging, inspiring meditation on the battle taught by Juanita Neilson to save Victoria Street from overdevelopment, and her murder, still unsolved. The film is gorgeous and the documents are fascinating. We have to learn our history in #Sydney, because it is intent on repeating.
