(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.

(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!
