Brindle Style Artists Forum



Australia has come a long way since 1984 when originator Maiia from Aotearoa's progressive capital city - first arrived in remote North Queensland. Good old days when mongrel breed oughta assimilate or be sterilised and die.  


Welcome to the September's issue of Brindle Style...

Much has changed even since we came online in 2003. Digital and Indy-Media pioneers connecting you with the outside world and each other. A warning voice for social and economic innovation in the face of globalism.


We recently considered closing Cairns Indy-Media- but after 30 years that has a whiff of surrender. Maybe we still can serve a function -the lone wolf willing to leave the pack and cruise the periphery and patriarchy - with an eye for the underdog, the lonely shepherd, the token female.  The Indigenous voice when they didn't invite 'real ones' - where we don't yet comprehend, or value the significant differences in worldviews. Maybe there is still a role for NO B.S - for the independent and creative thinker.


The big news this month is Brindle Style 3.0 - The Next Stage.  More guest writers, editors and speakers.  More dynamic content. Just more ofeverything Creative, Cottage Industries and Voluntary Simplicity. 


The ANZAC feature at THE PEACE ROOM  was a shared narrative - LAMENT For the Sorrows and Losses of War with Master lantern maker, AQUARIAN Elder Graeme Dunstan 

"The celebratory approach to citizen protest was learned as a student organiser of anti Vietnam War protests on the U.NSW campus.  It not only removes the need for violent confrontation as a way of communicating needs, it also wins hearts, builds cultural movements, community resistance as it goes."

From horse and cart straight on to the information super highway. From the stone age and the stoner age, to the new age.  To a brave new paradigm of global villages and communication. Brindle Style is not contrived to advance somebody's PR agenda, or in the words of wikipedia - 'persuade you to believe something that's not true.
