About the artists:

Allison Wright
Allison is the founder and creative director of Kammervolk Collective. She enjoys a diverse career as a sought after producer, composer, arranger and accomplished orchestral trumpet player.
Allison has had her original compositions and arrangements performed internationally including appearances at the Bang on a Can Summer Festival (MA, USA), and by prominent chamber groups such as All of The Above Ensemble (USA), Solstice Trio, Yarra Brass Quintet, Emerald Hill Brass Quintet and Ensemble Kammervolk.

Sam Biddle
The social documentary photography of Sam Biddle has emerged, and evolved, primarily through his time spent in developing nations. Often on contract for NGO's, these experiences have manifested themselves into a definitive visual voice.
One that explores inequality by way of juxtapositions. Seeking to piece together the fracture between familiar fantasies, and unpopular truths.

Mark Romei
Mark is an architect, artist and conceptual designer. Spanning a multi-disciplinary field, he creates work which embraces technology, traditional art practices and spatial design to find explorative creative potentials. Mark generates work with a focus on new and old practices and media, with an interest in how a syntheses of these can influence and challenge the possibilities of the creation of new spaces and moods through art.

Alison Erlanger
With four years of industry experience in advertising and a background in film and digital media, Alison lives and breathes creative projects. Self taught in areas of music, animation direction, producing, filmography, photography, fine art and screenwriting, she is always thirsting for more projects to pour her unique style of realism and curiosity into.

Georgie Darvidis
Georgina Darvidis is one of Melbourne’s most versatile and adventurous young artists. Beginning her musical study exploring theatre and classical vocal technique lead to major roles with The Melbourne Theatre Company and The Victorian Opera Company. After completing a Bachelor in Improvised music at The Victorian College of the Arts, she began to investigate more traditional jazz styles as well as free improvisation and cross disiplinary compositional forms. This lead to overseas study with acclaimed practitioners Shelley Hirsch and Theo Bleckmann in 2013.

Georgina's recent projects include performing in the premier original vocal theatre work "Permission to Speak" presented by the Chamber Made Opera company, features with the Australian Arts Orchestra, guest artist with the Rubiks Collective and completing a collaborative commission with the Bennetts Lane Big Band and the Penny string quartet.
