Just back from the 9th National Rural Health Conference was held in Albury, NSW. It was a great conference with a strong analysis of Australian rural health from ground to policy, and included a fabulous arts stream all from artists based in Albury. I joined the conference choir of about 30 men and women and we sang for the close of the conference. I was pleased to meet Tim Metcalf, a passionate doctor-poet, with whom I had correspondence leading up to the conference. When I find out details I’ll place a plug for Tim’s works which includes edited works of poetry from Australasian health professional poets. You can find my piece of performance poetry about the conference on the Poetry page. I am hoping to make a video performance for youtube and connect to here, shortly.
