New collaboration begins with local poet, Rob Waters

Posted: September 25, 2016 in Uncategorized

Poet and Creative Phd doctoral student, Rob Waters at Uralla’s Cafe Gusto recently, reading selected works. Rob & SVM have begun to use video documentation of his readings and spoken word performance as part of his work towards a Phd at University of New England.

We’ve been working together on the East Armidale Community Garden Project over the last year and now we’re moving into his domain, poetry and along with Dr Lorina Barker in the field of oral history and with Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Dr Kate Wright on indigenous knowledge systems and their transmission through storytelling.

First up, video recording of his appearance at the monthly poetry nights held in the bookshop at Cafe Gusto, Rob’s work was warmly received by the local poetry crowd.
