In Conversation - Environment and Sustainability

Panellist 1 – Jane Milburn
Rethinking clothing culture
As Albert Einstein said, we can’t solve problems using the same kind of thinking that we used to create them. Goodbye fast fashion, hello slow clothing. Based on a lifetime of upcycling, Slow Clothing author Jane Milburn shares insights and ideas to inspire mindful and creative ways of dressing to reduce our material footprint.
Jane is a sustainability consultant, a 2019 Churchill Fellow and a natural-fibre champion who believes in dressing for health and wellbeing. After doing leadership study in 2013, Jane set up Textile Beat to combine her background in agricultural science and career in rural communications to raise awareness about the environmental impact of clothes. She leads conversations about rethinking clothing culture to reduce waste and enhance wellbeing. More at textilebeat.com

Panellist 2 – Delvene Cockatoo-Collins
Delvene Cockatoo-Collins is Nunukul, Ngugi and Goenpul and whose family belong to the Quandamooka region. Delvene lives and works on Minjerribah – North Stradbroke Island. As an independent Aboriginal artist, Delvene operates out of a small studio and retail store in Dunwich, providing handmade ceramics, small sculptural works, and hand printed home wares.
Through these mediums she expresses the stories of her family’s lived experiences on North Stradbroke Island, and her response to images and texts related to her family. Recurring themes across Delvene’s work is the relationship to her great-great Grandmother, through a body of work titles Six Generations, Traditional mat making techniques, and the use of clays and pigments found across Quandamooka including the islands and mainland around Moreton Bay.
These clays and pigments continue to be embedded in Delvene’s work including the prints ‘Grandmothers Words’ acquired by the Redland Art Gallery 2018, the Brisbane City Council Indigenous Art Program 2019 Fish Lane Light box and Redlands Coast Branding Strategy 2018.
Delvene is the designer of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018 Prize-winners Medals, Commemorative Medal and the large inflatable Migalu. Which featured in the Opening Ceremony.

Panellist 3 – Imee Luz
My Multidisciplinary practice as an artist and jeweller is first and foremost an expression of my love for the natural world and exploration of the liminal spaces. My practice is built upon the foundation of sustainability, for Earth gives us many tools and I wish to use them with wisely and with gratitude. I source all natural items from the wild places and take them through and alchemical journey sot they may continue to ripple their magic through the world. Death always gives way to life again, with many stories in between. My work is heartfelt and woven with the intention to inspire and cultivate radical intimacy with our changing landscape. It is an invitation for a deeper reverence for this beautiful planet.
