Hey there!

A bit of a treat for you this week in that I have *actual* Jacky Winter things to discuss. I know that everyone was looking for me to perhaps elaborate on my thoughts regarding Tasty Cheese, but there are more pressing matters.

Firstly! *We are hiring a new producer in our Melbourne office!* We're going to keep repeating this until applications close next week on the 17th. Until then head on over to the job ad here to view more details and to apply.

Secondly! JWGYTB is back! In our eight season we're exploring the art of production through a series of new interviews with producers and project managers in a diverse range of mediums from TV Dramas to Video Games and everything in between. Listen to Jacky Winter Gives You The Business now! New episodes every Friday for the next ten weeks.

Okay, back to the Tasty Cheese thing. It's just the name. I mean literally every cheese, including Cheddar, is named after where it comes from. Unless there's a hidden township in Australia called Tasty, all I can picture is two rough as guts cheesemongers making this cheese, one of them turns to the other, and says 'You know what? This cheese sure is tasty' and then Bob's your uncle, Tasty cheese. I'm 99.9 percent confident that the actual truth is probably not far from this, and it just gives me a chuckle, and these days I'll take what I can get.

Want to know what else is Tasty? You know the drill, I don't need to elaborate. Just go on and get out of here you crazy kids, scroll on. Scroll on.

The Gallery

Lamington Drive is an exhibition space, art school and a great way to meet other artists. Feeling lonely? Come to a show!

Reverist - Kat Macleod


‘Reverist’ is a new collection of works by Kat Macleod, observing the human form in a state of reflection, contemplation and in search of space. Drawing on her favourite themes – the female figure and botanic shapes – Kat explores the process of being deep in thought and lost in space.

Exhibition runs until Saturday, October 12.

The Gardens

Clear the mind. Feed the process. Jacky Winter Gardens is a creative retreat nestled in a half-acre of natural bushland only 45 minutes from Melbourne. It’s a perfect getaway for solo travellers, couples and small groups.

Nature is a dictionary; one draws words from it.
