A New BIG rhythm

These are racing days filled with the sweetness and mystery of creating Tiny Worlds, as many BIG opportunities are opening up all over Australia. Inside the gathering speed I am slowly getting used to the new rhythm of Twyla (almost 6!) as my right hand person, while the extraordinary Jo Pollitt works on back to back dance projects.

It is a beautiful experience to watch my own child inhabit the growing pages of the next issue and both contribute her own ideas as well as respond to the content in ways that take it so much further than I could have imagined. Twyla created the colouring page for Tiny Worlds and met an obstacle in the process where she thought she was going to have to start all over again, after already spending a very long time working on it. It was beautiful to watch a creative struggle that I have faced often in my own practice and see her solve the problem in a way that extended the work visually. Her sense of accomplishment in entering her own unknown and coming through the challenge to a greater landing was encouraging. BIG has always been about opening portals to ways of seeing, understanding and responding to the world in ways that invite children into the actual joys and challenges of creative practice. It is always so exciting to be at the stage of actually seeing all the incredible contributions come to life on the pages and our designer is completely inspired!
