Welcome to EPISODE 30 of Good Will Hunters! This week I chat to the wonderful Kat Roma Greer, Founder of Micro Galleries.
I first read about Kat in SAM Magazine (The Sydney Uni Alumni Magazine)and was intrigued by her work creating inclusive art installations in cities around around the world. The link between art and community development is not always an obvious one, but I guarantee that after this episode, you’ll get it! Kat and I discussed the Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, the rise of create expression in the midst of a political crisis, transforming laneways in Jakarta and Kathmandu, making art inclusive, and empowering women through paint, plus lots more!
