Brindle Style Artists Network (Austranesia)



Histories, Herstories, Your Stories


                About Us is About You.


Brindle Style Artists Network is an independent voice in the space left behind by transnational power devouring the Community Conversation. AS IF IT IS WORTHLESS.


Brindle Style exists simply to record, reCognise, represent and respond to the local and regional viewpoint. 


Mission & Vision



"Rather than existing at the expense of the people involved, Brindle Style has a relational approach to creating community IndyMedia." MARIA LESLEY TONKS Editor and originator is an Aotearoa visual artist and photographer 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 this 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, 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. The digital communication highway was not only local it was transnational. AND COSTLY - in MANY WAYS.  We all know about corruption and dodgey relations between big money and politics, community, government and commerce driven pseudo media. Getting folk to believe and buy into a bunch of B.S is far far easier than getting them to see that they were LIED TO. And I don't mean Brindle Style.

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



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
