Ep 133. Michael Aiken: Working outside the lines

Describing Michael Aiken as a ‘poet’ only tells a tiny part of his story—Michael’s creative interests span everything from fiction writing to video games. Last year, all those interests came together in Sydney’s Newtown, where Michael now runs Garden Lounge Creative Space. We talk about what it’s been like to get Garden Lounge up and running (and to keep it going during 2020), along with the bigger issues surrounding this kind of work when it comes to gatekeeping, inclusivity and diversity.
