Quoting the quotes

A few buildings in Tokyo

A few buildings in Tokyo

“Not to find one’s way in a city may well be uninteresting and banal. It requires ignorance- nothing more. But to lose oneself in a city- as one loses oneself in a forest- that calls for quite a different schooling”

In Benjamin’s terms, to be lost is to be fully present, and to be fully present is to be capable of being in uncertainty and mystery…And one does not get lost but loses oneself, with the implication that it is a conscious choice, a chosen surrender, a psychic state achievable through geography.”

-Rebecca Solnit talking of Walter Benjamin and losing oneself in A Field Guide to Getting Lost

Soon, we at the bureau will be choosing to surrender to Hindley Street in Adelaide’s West End…we set up shop on October 21st so stay tuned for more details..

yours truly,

the ABW.

This is The Way

 

 

Hey all, whilst posing the big questions, great filmmakers Sam Wright and Kieran Ellis-Jones came our way to hang out. Tessa is there in spirit.. maybe in that dance party scene. Which yes, is a regular part of the Bureau working week.

Check it out.

 

the big picture

From a moving plane.

Between the beauty and chaos of intense bureau ‘meetings’ of particular places, there is a little more time to look at the big picture. (I find the view from a plane gives you a rather broad scope..) Like in life, between meetings, we are sometimes more able to ponder the bigger questions that enter our heads. Maybe dwell a little longer, think of things from a different perspective. A friend of the bureau was musing earlier in the year what a difference it makes when you have a view of nature from your house to wake up to and contemplate before the day starts. It also seems that daylight, air quality and seeing stars really can shift our minds into new and more exploratory territory. Here are a few questions going around the bureau which we have no concrete answers to, but are always seeking to address. Please get your fresh air, natural view and sense of adventure ready as some of them are big ones.

What is art?

What is community?

What is engagement?

How do we forge true connections with each other as humans?

Is there anything more important than true connections with others?

If you have any more to add or some answers to the questions above, feel free to post them below.

Asking the big questions,

Yours truly,

The A.B.W.

 

 

A few observations from the 12th National Rural Health Conference

 

 

 

 

12th National Rural Health Conference – Beginnings

The ABW hard at it on their latest assignment.  Day 1 of a 3 day conference, at the end of which we will present our findings.

The A.B.W. Meets the 12th National Rural Health Conference

From the 7th – 10th of April we will be attending the 12th National Rural Health Conference in Adelaide.  Over 3 days we will be meeting people, conducting worthiness research and presenting our findings at the final plenary presentation to around 1000 people at the Adelaide Convention Centre.  We are excited to be part of this event and even more excited to further compress our rapid work model!

Here’s a link to the conference-
