High Lights From Current Art Starts School Tour

excerts from a letter

Re: Vic High performance March 3

Hi Kinnie, I’m the teacher who got up and ‘freestyled’ at your Vic High apperance. I just wanted to say thanks for the opportunity to connect with students in that way; I didn’t say thanks or even look at you when I was finished as I was so shit scared I just needed to get out of the room, but there it is.

There was so much that was good about your performance at Vic High, not the least of which is that we have a sizable ‘half breed’ population, and yours is not a message we hear very often. Your ability to get students moving and dancing was fantastic, that kind of thing is what we need so much. I heard a lot of good things from students after the performance, I think your efforts there were very much appreciated by all.

Great show again, and all the best.

Have Kinnie Starr speak at your school
