A floor talk by Lorna Martin, curator of Barkly Arts

"For an art worker, there is a life that comes from growing an organisation to meet the needs of remotely located people who may not have a building, tables, chairs or accommodation and assisting the artists to get their work to a market that is respectful of the work and the artist." … Lorna Martin
