Brindle Style Artists Network (Australia)



Histories, herstories, 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.


Independent media and citizen journalism arose in the space left behind by media monopolies that devoured real relevant and entertaining local news.  Our Community Consultation occured as the potential in internet communication became apparent and available.  The communication highway was not only local it was transnational. 


The Truth about corruption and the relationships between big money and politics, community, government, and commerce driven pseudo media became so much easier. However what we found was -  getting folk to believe and buy into a bunch of convincing lies is far far easier - than getting them to understand that they WERE LIED TO.


Our community consultation and direction took also significantly 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.

"Rather than existing at the expense of the people involved, Brindle Style has a relational approach to creating community IndyMedia." -MARIA LESLEY TONKS   Editor, originator at Brindle Style is an Aotearoa visual artist with a background in communication design; education, arts and the community freepress traditions of the 1970s and 80s. 


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.


A Celebration of Life  Bringing HeART to Healing 


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
