cardiCast episode 43 – We Need Books and ECHO Refugee Library – Greece interviews

Melbourne newCardigan Interview 2018

Recorded Live in Athens, Greece

The second in our special cardiCast ‘Summer Series’…

Ioanna Nissiriou – We Need Books – and Varvara Svoronou – ECHO Refugee Library – speak with Justine Hanna about their work helping support refugees in Athens. These interviews were recorded in the We Need Books brand new Multicultural Library, which opened in early October 2018.

Both organisations are working to create inclusive communities and provide access to knowledge for vulnerable and minority groups.

The ”interlude” music was performed by a group of musician friends enjoying coffee together and was recorded live whilst eating delicious souvlaki on a tiny street in Athens.

We know this is a longer episode than usual, however we think the content is worth the listen!

If you are interested in these projects and would like to help or support their work in any way, please visit their websites for contact details.

cardiCast Episode 40 – Zine-a-thon

Melbourne September 2018 cardiParty

Recorded Live

Over a pint or two at the Park Hotel, a small but passionate group of new initiates and confirmed Zine lovers got together to have a bit of a crafternoon. This recording is of the round table discussion on why Zines are great, as well as issues about cataloguing these special items. We all got an opportunity to make our own Zine- some are discussed on the recording, but not all (as the batteries ran out). If you want to look at everyone’s efforts, then head to our Instagram!
