Sunshine Surf Girls - Changing perceptions!

@ VOL 21 ON MAY 18, 2017

Growing up in country Australia may not be the best start for a surfer but since learning to surf at university, Liz Davison has never looked back. She’s produced a yoga for surfers, taught surfing in the Maldives, surfed with crocodiles in the Solomons, was the national president of Surfing Mums Australia and now heads Sunshine Surf Girls, an online and print surfing magazine for women. With a background in gender studies and community development, Liz hopes to build an international community of women surfers to change the roles and perceptions of women in the surf industry.

Ocean of Art

@ VOL 21 ON MAY 18, 2017

"To me, my art now tells a story between nature and humanity, a push and pull, love and betrayal type of visual dialogue that exposes my emotional connections with the ocean."

In Ocean of Art from Pechakucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 21, we hear from Scott Denholm, a contemporary ocean artist. His art focuses on the ocean and explores the emotional relationships that we have with it. Through his life as a surfer and conservationist, he has sought to capture semi-abstract moments that resonate with people from all walks of life. His paintings are also created with environmentally friendly art materials. In his presentation, he wants to focus on these emotional relationships and explore them through his new series, "Elevation".
