Nillawarran artists get fired up

“Feeling the heat” often implies uncomfortable pressure or warmth, or it can be a desirable state. Whether environmental, physical, emotional or political, there is plenty of room for interpretation. This has proven to be a popular theme for the inaugural winter exhibition at the Clifton School of Arts which opens in early June.

Nineteen local artists have explored and interpreted this theme, and will be represented in a diverse show of evocative paintings, sculptures, photography and drawings, showing from 6-15 June.

Ruth Harvey and Vyvian Wilson, who are members of the Clifton School of Arts (CSA) Management Committee, dreamed up the exhibition in order to ‘warm up’ and invigorate a unique cultural space, and to provide an opportunity for more artists to experience and enjoy the venue.

So much of what we experience in our relationships with others goes unsaid, or comes out in ways that can be very damaging. We often struggle with indecision and a lack of clarity over what is happening with others. It may be reassuring to know that you are not alone in these experiences and things can change for the better, for your own well-being.

A one day workshop, Assertiveness and Improving Relationships, is being offered through Thirroul Neighbourhood Centre on Thursday 26th June. The workshop will run from 10am through to 2.30pm and will be a donation-only arrangement. All proceeds will be donated to help support Thirroul Neighbourhood Centre.

Krav Maga alive and kicking in the Illawarra

For the first time, Thirroul is being introduced to a different form of practical self-defence training from an unlikely source.

Shaun Hughston grew up in the Illawarra. He is a family man, a successful recruitment professional, and a Krav Maga self-defence instructor.

“It’s for regular people – you don’t have to be tough. I own a recruitment company, I wear glasses, you would never guess I am a Krav Maga instructor,” jokes Shaun.

The basis for Krav Maga was first devised in the 1930s to protect European Jews from fascist attacks. Later, it became mandatory in the Israeli army. Over time, it has been developed into a form of self-defence training for civilians, with simple moves that are taught in relation to real life situations.
