Well and good

It's been a busy few days and I've been sucked into the vortex of school holidays spending my days outside taking children to playdates.  I did manage to see the Australian Ballet's production of The Nutcracker at the Arts Centre on Tuesday night with my friend Kal courtesy of my client Avant Card and it was a real highlight - productions set to live music from an orchestra (Tchaikovsky in this particular instance) are always pretty magical.  I've not been to the ballet in years so the opportunity to go was very special - I felt quite cultured!  The Tram Bar was closed when we got out so we ended up at the Curve Bar for a quick drink after the ballet was over.

I just wanted to post on a couple of other cultural events - Katherine Hattam Waters' new series of works Backwaters opened last night at LUMA (La Trobe University Museum of Art) in Bundoora and runs until 7 November.  It examines the relationship between minor waterways and the sites in which they are situated including Merri Creek in Melbourne, the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn and the Suzhou Creek in Shanghai using woodblocks, prints and collages.  You can also catch the last days of The Light Factory Gallery's shows Tableaux Melbourne, Monkey Tail Collection 8 and The Lost Journals which finish this coming weekend on September 28.  The gallery will remain open from 2 - 12 October from 11 am - 2 pm with The Art of Portraiture - a a selection of portraits painted by local artists.  Watch this space for news on its new incarnation.

The Slow Food Melbourne Farmers' Market is on this Saturday at Abbotsford Convent while The Wellness Walk and Ivanhoe Street Party is on this coming Sunday 28 September commencing at 11am at The Centre Ivanhoe - registration starts at 8.30am and the street party will run from 9 am - 4 pm on Upper Heidelberg Road in Ivanhoe.  Funds raised go to the Olivia Newton John Cancer & Wellness Centre at the Austin Hospital in Heidelberg.  Speaking of wellness, the Heidelberg Fit Club runs every Sunday from 9 am at Heidelberg Park near the kids play area and basketball court.  It's a free community workout designed for anyone of any age and any fitness level with free wellness evaluations available by appointment.  Call Hannah on 0423 626 835 or Matt on 0401 307 320 for more information.

Finally, tomorrow I will have a new local profile also centred on wellness - stay tuned.
