Helping people help themselves
In just a few years, Ed Sheeran has gone from sleeping rough near Buckingham Palace to playing for the Queen. On the eve of his Australian tour, the English singer-songwriter talks about tea, ticket sales…and Taylor Swift.
Melissa Cranenburgh takes a look at Hozier, another male crooner who is taking the music world by storm; ex prisoners in Adelaide find art after jail; Thuy On reflects on still having to prove who she is after 30 years in Australia; and in ‘Roving Eye’, one photographer documents her very personal experience of epilepsy.
