Brindle Style Artists Network (Australia)

Histories, herstories and your stories. About Us is About You. Brindle Style Artists Network exists simply to record, reCognise, represent and respond to the local and regional voice.



The Community Consultation occured as the wonder and the possibility of internet communication became apparent and available in the 1990s.  As independent media and citizen journalism became transnational. 


Investigating contradictions and the paradoxes of money in politics, corporate influence and the intersections between community, government, media ownership and big business became so much easier.


Our community consultation and direction took a whole new turn in the absolute chaos, that was the demolition of the World Trade Centre in New York on September 11, 2001. Mission & Vision


Maiia Brindle

MARIA LESLEY TONKS:  Editor, originator at Brindle Style is an Aotearoa visual artist with a background in communication design; education, arts and the freepress traditions of the 1970s and 80s. 

"Rather than existing at the expense of the people involved, Brindle Style has a relational approach to creating community IndyMedia." 

I don't care whether you are black, white or BRINDLE is an Australian saying that indicates to the listener in a conversation that we have arrived at the heart and soul of a matter. It is a language device used to describe how ordinary distinctions that we make - are needless now, they have become useless, unnecessary and unhelpful - we have arrived at Common ground, we're on the Solid Ground, the Higher Ground, even Sacred Ground.

Brindle Style came online for International Women's Day 2003.  It is a purpose built and evolving framework for learning, empowering and inspiring creative community.  


"The Murri Grapevine is notoriously reliable and well-informed and if you step out - as JOURNALISM ONCE HAD TO every community has it's own political and social commentator and amateur economist.


Brindle Style isn't contrived to advance somebody's PR agenda, sell you a product, or in the words of wikipedia - 'persuade you to believe something that's not true.PWe're just part of the 2% of what we read, hear & view that comes from mainstreet. 


"I do not believe in frontiers, barriers and flags. I believe we all belong, independently of latitudes and longitudes, independently to the same family which is the human family." Vitorrio Arrigoni
