Upcoming events

    • 22 Sep 2019
    • 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
    • Lizzie & Lefroy, 349 Elizabeth Street, North Hobart

    Celebrate the publication of the third Writers in Kyoto Anthology and the Australia-Japan friendships it represents. Professor Jann Williams, lead-editor and designer of the Anthology, and Corinne Costello who created two striking sumi-e images for the book, will be present. Both are well known Tasmanians with strong connections to Japan.

    The anthology contains diverse prose, poetry and imagery from 23 authors and 4 illustrators. From gardens to gangsters, temples to tourism, ceramics to Casablanca, new authors are found alongside existing authors known for their insights into Japan. All find inspiration from the muse of Kyoto, a city of many dimensions.

    The anthology will be launched by Dr Heidi Auman - author, biologist, taiko player.

    4-5pm: Formal program
    5-5.30pm: Discussion + Anthology viewing over drinks & light food

    Please RSVP to Jann Williams by September 18th for catering purposes.

    • Dreamfarm Eco-Arts Retreat, Huon Valley, Tasmania

    The Dreamfarm Eco-Arts Retreat is delighted to welcome Japanese bamboo flute master Yasukazu Kano to Tasmania. It is a great privilege to host him for an intimate concert at Dreamfarm Eco-Arts Retreat. He will be joined by Yyan Ng on Taiko drums and special guests.

    Kano has performed in over a thousand venues worldwide, including Carnegie Hall and the Berlin Philharmonic Hall, as a Taiko drummer and Shinobue (bamboo flute) player for KODO.

    Yasukazu Kano draws his musical inspiration from the beautiful nature of Sado Island. He can make the Shinobue sing like the birds and sound like the ocean breeze and the forest wind. Kano's melodies are simple and expressive, and his original compositions showcase the blend of traditional and modern, incorporating Japanese scales and rhythms, jazz improvisation, African rhythms and classical music.

    Limited tickets. Bookings essential via trybooking.
    Event not suitable for children.
