  1. 1. CELEBRATE LIVING HISTORY Howdy Folks! Hard to believe its semester two, the year is flying so fast. I hope you have all been well and for those in Melbourne keep your spirits up! I literally have lost count of what lockdown we are in! Like a bad song it just keeps going! All we can do is keep living and make the most of the situation. Such as taking Celebrate Living History mascot Miss Ava Dognar for long walks! I’m very lucky to have intern Isabella Chua from Griffith University on board this semester. Isabella has a background in creative writing and loves to cook. She shares some yummy Filipino recipes that her family love to eat. Food can open the door to many cultures and it was fun to see what food she came up with! I was inspired to chat to my own mum about her favourite foods, I am half Filo as well and I’m going to experiment with some of these delicious recipes. I’ve been busy completing my celebrant course and I’m nearing the end! I just have to film fake weddings and baby naming ceremonies. I’m hoping once lockdown is over, I can finally complete all assessments. I will be so happy once I’ve completed my course it’s definitely been a long road to getting it done! Oh and I get to marry people! How cool would that be! Reflecting back on this year I’ve missed travel but I’ve gained so much from just being at home. I’ve loved working on my skills and simply hanging with my dog. It is so important to keep your mind active and just simply enjoy the small things! Keep Safe! Till Next Time!

  2. 2. P H O T O B Y M A R T I N R . S M I T H What attracts you about being an intern for Celebrate Living History? I am attracted to the position of intern for Celebrate Living History since I find their topics of discussion like life stories, culture, and food and drink appealing to my own writing interests. Who is an older person that you admire and why? An older person that I admire in my life is my Lola (my maternal grandmother), because she encourages me in everything I do and loves me unconditionally. Likewise, she is also a devoutly religious, resilient and humble woman who, after overcoming many hardships as an immigrant in Australia, loves nothing more than praying to God, and spending time with her beloved children and grandchildren. Meet Isabella Chua Our latest intern from Griffith University If you could jump into a time machine what era would you visit and why? If I could jump into a time machine, I would visit the era of 1780s Australia, so I could witness firsthand the effects of British colonization in the country. FOR BEAUTIFUL EYES, LOOK FOR THE GOOD IN OTHERS; FOR BEAUTIFUL LIPS, SPEAK ONLY WORDS OF KINDNESS; AND FOR POISE, WALK WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.

  4. 4. P H O T O B Y M A R T I N R . S M I T H Having studied a Bachelor of Arts at university, Jenny has always had an affinity for painting using acrylics. She longed to take her passion into schools and teach but found it difficult to land a job at her local schools. 8 years after she relocated to the Coast, it was finally time for her dreams to become a reality and set to work converting her garage into an art studio. Jenny gathered together paints and canvases, pots and paintbrushes and enlisted the help of Vince to make the easels using his woodworking skills. They put out the word and it soon became popular with the local Hinterland ladies looking for a bit of fun and to develop their artistic capabilities. This was what Jenny always wanted- to nurture people’s talents and teach them techniques and theories that she’d learnt at her time at university. It quickly became more than a class and she formed strong connections and friendships with her students, most of whom were around the same age as her. They became like sisters to her, creating a loving and incredibly supportive community doing activities together outside the studio like annual camping trips, breakfasts, and brunches. Artist in Residence By Erin Norton After years of waiting tables in cafes and restaurants in Brisbane and raising a family, Jenny was in desperate need of a change. So, in 1999, she packed up and moved with her husband Vince to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. It was peaceful and had more than enough room for their horses which Vince rode and looked after with pride. Jenny spent her spare time working on her art in their garage. After a couple of years of running the adult classes, Jenny, now a grandmother, decided to start a kid’s art class. This class would accommodate children from ages 6 and up. I joined in 2007 along with my twin sister and we absolutely loved it, riding our bikes down to the studio every Saturday morning. It soon became like a second home to us, and my sister nicknamed Jenny “our Australian Grandma”. According to Jenny, we were very naughty during art classes. Apparently during one of our many dinners, my sister and I ate all the Nutella and bounced off the walls. My friend still teases me about it to this day even though I have no memory of it. Despite our unruliness, we managed to produce paintings (mostly animals). Painting has become a way to relax and unwind, especially recently as the pressures of university have ramped up. Throughout the years, Jenny and my gang of art friends have encouraged me to experiment with different mediums of painting such as watercolour, oil paints and the using gesso paste to create texture and depth to my work.

  5. 5. P H O T O B Y M A R T I N R . S M I T H Artist in Residence Cont Even though my sister and I no longer attend classes regularly, we stay in touch and try to organise as many dinners and get togethers as possible. We are always welcome in the studio and Jenny refers to us as “her girls”. She has been with us for many milestones of our lives and will be there for many more in the future. After approximately 22 years, Jenny still loves her art classes, teaching the next generation of little painters as well as volunteering at the Supporting Teenagers with Education, Mothering and Mentors (STEMM) program at Burnside School. She said the reason that she teaches definitely isn’t for the money but for the everlasting love and commitment that her students show her. She is amazed by the progress that we make in our skills. SEM 2: 2021 WWW.CELEBRATELIVINGHISTORY.COM.AU Meet Heather Joy Bassett who is a speaker and mentor What advice would you give to the younger generation? Know that it is ok not to have the answers. That you are perfectly you and try not to get caught up in other’s expectations of what you should be. Asking questions of your-self is normal. You may at times feel broken, as do most of us at times. Know that while you feel it to be true, it is not. Life is one of abundance and gratitude helps it flow. There are no such things as negative emotions. Being human means that we have dark times as well as light times and that is all normal. You are never alone in what you are feeling, expressing feelings safely is healthy. Sadness, anger, fear and joy are normal, neutral feelings.

  6. 6. SEM 2: 2021 WWW.CELEBRATELIVINGHISTORY.COM.AU She asked Kevin if he would like a chocolate, he replied jovially that he should be watching his weight. This moment really brought Kevin down to our level, and made me realise that even though he held a really important role, he was just human, like us. My favourite event to work was the Gold Coast Show, where I would be either the cashier in the food or coffee van. I loved the ding of the cash register and the fast pace of the job. I enjoyed yelling out orders and prepping containers for food. I didn’t really have to think that much, I would just go on autopilot! Sometimes we would have massive queue lines, especially in the mornings. People wanted their coffee and they wanted it fast! I never wanted to be a barista; the job looked too stressful. You would have to remember all the little details such as if they needed soy milk or regular milk, or how to create a coffee drink like Affogato in minutes. I was always grateful for my breaks, where I would enjoy a free meal from the company and just relax and enjoy a half hour of peace. When you work with hordes of people, those minutes away are really important so you can calm down. After working at a fast rate, I found I needed to just slow down and to enjoy just being in the moment. Diaries of a Casual Worker can be purchased at www.bevwilkinson.com.au or Amazon. Casual Work on the GC (Taken from Diaries of a Casual Worker by Bev Wilkinson) While on the Gold Coast, I ended up working at many major events, through All Crowd Catering, and Spotless. Every weekend, I would be working either a game of rugby at Suncorp Stadium, or football at Carrara Stadium, now called Metricon Stadium. I didn’t really understand rugby, but I loved how excited the fans became when they saw their team score a touchdown. I used to work in the corporate area as a food runner, it was hard work delivering food and drink to guests. But I loved getting to know the other staff from around the world. There were a lot of people from Brazil and Colombia, and I loved getting to know their culture and way of life. I would love to go to Brazil and Colombia one day, they are such wonderful people, full of colour and life! Working in the corporate areas was another world, I got to see celebrities such as Shane Webcke, who is a former professional rugby player for the Brisbane Broncos. Nearly every weekend, Shane was there in his corporate box, while I was in the corridors delivering food and beverages. My friends who grew up in Queensland were envious, I was working in amongst rugby royalty and I still had no idea how the game was run. Being amongst these rugby greats was wasted on a girl from Victoria! I remember one time my friend said she served Kevin Rudd, the Former Prime Minister of Australia. Kevin was in one of her corporate suites, and she was so nervous.
  7. 7. SEM 2: 2021 WWW.CELEBRATELIVINGHISTORY.COM.AU Meet Angela Rodgers who founded her own copywriter business What advice would you give to your younger self? Stick to your vision. You can do this. Keep learning as much as you can, and it will pay off. Who is an older person that you admire and why? My great grandma was pretty cool (she made it to 102). I don’t just admire her for her longevity though. She was a feisty lady and raised four small children on her own after her husband died. She just got on with life, made the most of things, and was always super practical.
