Each year I travel up to Brisbane to take part in the One Word One Day fundraiser. Artists from around Australia get together and create art to raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, which supports disadvantaged kids in the remotest parts of Australia.
The Queensland gathering of artists in 2013 was held in The Edge, State Library of Queensland and sponsored by Micador, The Australian Society of Authors and the Australian Broadcasting Commission. All art supplies are provided and our work is inspired by a surprise theme; in 2013 the word was 'snappy'.
