Here at Lip, we have been super excited by the buzz around Pozible and their new hyper-local projects in Sydney and Brisbane (so far!). This week I cyber-met Sheldon Hikaiti, the founder and director of YummBox, a deliciously healthy online company that delivers lunches to busy Brisbanites. Here, Sheldon discusses her inspiration for YummBox and how her Pozible…

papergirl brisbane: global street art project hits australia

Vanessa Wright
No comments

  Public art is a tricky beast: great in theory, not always in practice. Everyone has an example in their own city or hometown of public art gone horribly wrong. Sometimes the best kind of public art is the unsanctioned kind – graffiti, street art, paste-ups, flash mobs, anything that uses public space in a…

a plus size wardrobe

Sonya Krzywoszyja
No comments

It’s no secret I indulge and sometimes (OK, mostly) enjoy conspicuous consumption. I think fat women in particular have been denied the right to enjoy fashion and consume it the way that straight sized women have been able to (or, I suppose, the way that well-off women, who would likely to be able to afford…

Grace Carroll
One comment

  ‘All the world’s a stage…’ wrote Shakespeare more than five hundred years ago. The works of American photographer Gregory Crewdson reveal that these sentiments have as much relevance to contemporary life as they did to Elizabethan England. In a Lonely Place, the first major exhibition of Crewdson’s photographs to tour Australia, features images that…

The ugliest effing sweater and the Brisbane Fatty Clothing Swap

Sonya Krzywoszyja
No comments

I helped set up and attended the first ever Brisbane Fatty Clothing swap the other week. After some hassle of figuring out how to transport three very large garbage bags full of clothing (and the bags had rips all over them, from my kitten – a fact I didn’t realise until I’d gotten out of…

public access to academic writing and anti-obesity messages

Sonya Krzywoszyja
No comments

It’s been a rather disheartening week in fat acceptance circles. Frances from Corpulent and Dr. Samantha Thomas from The Discourse were recently on Today Tonight for a story about weight loss surgery for children. It was presented to them in a positive light, but obviously the producers changed the way the segment was handled, as…

One comment

I attended the Brisbane Slutwalk on the 28th of May. I attended in support and solidarity of my peers, male and female. The turn out at the Brisbane event was very large. Over 2000 people rsvped on Facebook, and although I don’t believe that many people came, the crowd was huge. We walked the streets,…
