Event description

Description

Embracing the awkwardness of human conversation, this program offers a unique opportunity for intimate one-on-one conversations in experimental formats, tackling anxieties, debilitating habits and hard-to-talk-about subjects like mental health.

Awkward Conversations make no demands, have no expectations, and require no social skills whatsoever.

About

Our “AWKWARD CONVERSATIONALISTS” are each inspired by their own lived experiences. A mix of artists, performers and activists, they are committed to creating ways to connect, to flouting the rigid conventions of normal social communications and to respecting radical diversity.

We highly encourage people to book tickets to secure a spot with our Awkward Conversationalists. Places will be available on the day, but numbers are limited, so get in early! The Awkward Conversations Program is a safe space but would like to advise participants that conversations may contain diverse and potentially sensitive content.

Have an awkward convo Greg Sindel!

Greg Sindel (Greg is supported in one-on-one conversations by a representative of Studio A).

WHO: Greg is a cartoonist and story writer who just likes to be respected. He’s friendly, humorous and charismatic. Throughout Greg’s life, listening, watching and writing stories has been a remedy for feelings of anxiety…except on the rare occasions when he suffers writer’s block and feels fresh out of ideas…then Greg feels anxious once again!

HOW: Choose your adventure; Greg will read his comic aloud to you. A great, personalized way to experience his art.

Greg Sindel

Greg Sindel is a passionate and prolific graphic novelist. An ardent researcher, Greg is an expert on cult comic and horror film classics and is constantly sourcing new material from which to derive inspiration. Greg has developed his storytelling craft since childhood , overcoming considerable learning difficulties to develop into a fluent wordsmith and illustrator. Greg launched his first graphic novel at Kinokuniya Books in 2012. In 2014 he completed a ten-minute animation based on his horror comics and in 2015 collaborated with Erth Visual and Physical Inc. to realise a puppet incarnation of one of his characters. He is mentored by artist, Leigh Rigozzi and has collaborated with arts organisations, Erth and Curiousworks. Greg participated in the 2013 Museum of Contemporary Art Zine Fair, and later in the year he presented at the MCA as part of the ‘Supported Studio: Possibilities and Potential’ forum.
