This month, tune in for a special Arts Society talk by Aboriginal expert and FANZA trustee Rebecca Hossack, plus enjoy some world-class performances by young Australian and New Zealand musicians as part of the popular Tait Tuesdays series, including a masterclass on musical theatre by Australian tenor Paul Tabone.

Tuesday 16 June 11.00 BST
The Arts Society - virtual
From Dreamtime to Machine Time: a lecture by the UK's leading Aboriginal art expert and gallerist, Rebecca Hossack
Rebecca Hossack will give an intimate insight into her long association with Aboriginal art and artists through an examination of three key paintings from her personal collection.

Tracing the evolution of the Western Desert painting movement from its origins at Papunya in the Northern Territory in the 1970s to its position today as a major contemporary art force, she will share her stories of working with indigenous artists across Australia.

We will hear about Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri and of his visit to London when Hossack took him to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen; about her meetings with the formidable Emily Kame Kngwarreye, who achieved international stardom in her eighties, and about the artists of Spinifex Country in the Western Desert, driven from their land for a generation by the atom bomb testing in the 1950s.

Sunday 14 June, 12-2pm BST
