Galah’s Make Australia Make Again issue is full of questions like ‘what can we make today?’ ‘What will serve us?’ And, perhaps most importantly, ‘what will satisfy us?’
We sit down with manufacturers, artists and economists, with saddlers and woodworkers and cooks. We quit work, we visit a town as it reverses it’s boom-to-bust past. We watch millions of dollars pour into the arts across regional Australia. We meet a woman who thinks nothing of hand stitching a quilt for six months, we visit an artist in a banana packing shed, we deck out an old train carriage with modern Australian fabrics. We fall in love over persimmons and we make a garden from scratch.
Our regulars Meg Mason, Gabrielle Chan, Fiona Bateman, Mark McGinness and Aunty Maude are joined by a new kid on the block .. a seasoned regional GP, who sends dispatches from his remote posts. He describes himself as grumpy but his letters are full of love. Make a beeline for this issue celebrating all things regional Australia.
