At this years Bendigo Writers Festival, Bryan Dawe will tell the story about how he came to be a satirist, partnering with the late John Clarke to create their unique style of humour for so long part of our national commentary.

He also shows, for the first time in Australia, an exhibition of artworks called Tangier Illusions.

Bryan Dawe has spent many months in Tangier on his many visits to Morocco where he developed a deep appreciation of its people and culture.

The exhibition, first shown in Tangier in February 2017, is an exciting collection of artistically enhanced images that go far beyond the usual touristic depictions.

Surrealistic, with more than a hint of humour, the photographs delve into the psyche of Tangier: the old bars and cafes inhabited by the famous writers and musicians, the artists, spies, the wealthy, and the smugglers.  Against a backdrop of decaying buildings and circus, Bryan honours Tangier’s creative and social past.

These photographic collages reveal Bryan’s love of the visual arts, his fascination for creativity, and his increasing love of a place he now visits more and more – Tangier in Morocco.

Bookings essential.
