(7) The #airmailproject – I was very excited to have the use of the Camberwell Post Office – the perfect way to bring the project to people as they are buying stamps

Favourite conversation about the project by far was with an excited 7 year old who loved how far all the pictures had been posted – and special unending thanks to New Zealand artist Rosie Cooper and coffee queen Kate Sagovsky for all the help to make it work – and the guys at Kopi for making the launch breakfast so tasty.



(8) Those talented folks at Mini Moderns and their classy festival merchandise showing off Camberwell’s foodies

(9) The Big Raw Choc Slam – Richard Purnell is always a treat and Paul Point is building a lovely monthly night of spoken word in Camberwell over at Communion Bar – The Chocolate Poetry Club

(10) Everyone who gave so much time and energy to making it all happen – artists, event organisers, venues, volunteers, sponsors, and the board – a true #CamberwellFeast

Here’s to next year!
