It's a crazy world we live in where so many amazing artists congregate to live and work in one locality! The 5 Lands locality of the Central Coast in NSW has become known as a centre of excellence in the arts. It's home to accomplished musicians such as Yantra de Vilder, Jiri Kripac, Andrew Worboys and Mary-Ellen Wallace to name a few. It's also home to any number of nationally acclaimed visual artists like Mike Worrall, Wendy Bills, Paul Haggith, Charlie Trivers, Graeme Balchin, Jane Gillings, Willemina Villari, Bronwyn Van der Graaff, Margaret Fortey and Janet Hoyer Cobb among many others. Theatre practitioners like Dinah Shearing, Rob Carlton, Pippa Grandison, Steve Le Marquand, Iain (Mouse) McGuire, Chris King and Pauline Wright also call the Central Coast home. There are also some great writers like Jill Mather, Adrian Deans, Annie Bilton and Clem Gorman living in our midst. There must be something in the water!
