Till we meet again, Hobart.
It has been a busy couple of weeks here wrapping it all up in Hobart. I got a few more weeks left in this town before sailing of to go to Sydney, just finalizing a few of my projects before starting my work as a full time Relief Chief Cook on the Bob Barker this Monday.
BRANCH/BOOK/BENCH- Second Echo
I am finishing up my stage management work for the Tasmania Theatre Company this week, with three more shows to go with BRANCH, BOOK, BENCH, which has been an absolute blast, such an inspirational and important project to be part of, working with people with disabilities is so wonderful, it brings me so much joy, love and above all such wide perspective on all the things we take for granted, how strong, fantastic and extremely talented this cast is and how much they have to deal with being over looked, misunderstood and at times being discriminated, it’s great to be part of the team that makes them shine, that makes them get heard.
For all you Second Echo Cast Members, you make me PROUD to be part of this project, love to you all!
THE MATERIAL GIRLS EXHIBITION 2012
Another project I am part of is the MATERIAL GIRLS EXHIBITION at the Moonah Arts Centre. I performed at the Opening Night last Friday together with Wendy Fitch (body paint artist) the exhibition runs until the 31st of May and is absolutely AWESOME, an honor to be part of!
MINI DEVIL WHALE, an art auction extravaganza!
This Monday the 21st of May a few Captain K Creatives have managed to get together a MINI DEVIL WHALE here in Hobart at the Alley Cat, will be a lovely, intimate night with crew talks, art and more, really excited about it & determined to keep the Devil Whale alive in this town all through the year, there is already talk about a Medium Devil Whale around July/August, I am so stoked about this! Check the FB event HERE and join the Devil Whale FB Group!
I have once again packed my life up & I am moving to the ship in two days, I could not be more ready, I am so excited and I am forever grateful for the opportunity I have been given. To be the Relief Chief Cook in Jo’s (Chief Cook right now) absence is such an honorable thing.
Making sure the galley runs smoothly & the crew gets fed, that’s a wonderful thing, because I feel part of the whole, of something bigger with the small thing I do, with what I have to offer, a lot of small things add up to be bigger things though, like the fundraising, out reach work, creating awareness in town using my creativity & artistic skills, on shore volunteer recruitment, I have done all that and now I am in the galley, cooking for my fellow Shepherds, for the people that really matter to me, for the people that I admire & adore so much, that is such a fantastic thing.
I am determined and totally dedicated to bring in lots of great recipes, good food & huge amounts of positive, creative energy. I know there will be challenges, I know at times it will be hard, but that doesn’t change why I am here, why I feel so honored & blessed & excited about the journey I am about to embark on, this is it, I am here! Everything I do always comes back to the core element of my being, to stand for what I believe to serve both myself and others & to never give up on my dreams.
Knowing that security isn’t the meaning of my life, because I know great opportunities are worth the risk. Plus let’s face it…… home is where the Bob is. ☺
Till we meet again Hobart.
With love ,
Creative Captain K/ Karo
