But he didn't need art to do what he did, he had the context of the union movement. Discussing Jack Mundey's concept of green bans and public space as a 'spatial project' in an art context, is implying a common link between the union movement and art, which makes us aware of the way both offer room for alternative thinking or challenges to mainstream thinking.

Festival of Jewish Arts and Music (FOJAM)

It's been 20 years since I fell hard for the words of Leonard Cohen and the pictures he painted. It's also been 20 years since I wanted to make my life about music, art and poetry.
