You are invited to a conversation about ART, LIFE & COMMUNITY.

Ask the Artist is an Eltham-based consultation and community facilitation project. We run retreats, immersions, consultations, conversations and magical mystery bus tours that explore the perfect conditions for a thriving creative community.

Join two local artists Debby Maziarz and Nicole Johnston in their homes to

ask questions, indulge and connect.

  • Debby Maziarz

    Debby is a writer, facilitator and community advocate who launched her inspiring, creative career in the circus.

  • Nicole Johnston

    Nicole is a dancer, teacher and maker who is passionate about weaving connections between creativity, nature and her local community.

Join us for Artopia

A focus group by Ask the Artist

ARTOPIA is a focus group with a difference. It’s an artist-led intervention that combines conversation, design, reinvigoration and good food. It explores what we need and want as creatives and asks how we can pool resources to build a more resilient, connected and creative community.

What do artists really need and want?

Please join us for some food and beverages and a nourishing conversation facilitated by Debby Maziarz and Nicole Johnston from Ask the Artist with guest performer and storyteller Amie Brulee.

12:45 pm – 3:30 pm Saturday 31 July at a Nillumbik venue TBC closer to the date.

Limited spaces!
