Cj Fraser-Bell is an aspiring theatre maker who has been working in the Darwin arts scene since 2010. A multi-disciplined practitioner jumping from performance to visual arts, writing, directing and production on a spattering of community and company productions, Cj has recently taken on a role as creative producer for her own work, collaborating with other emerging performance makers exploring the small lost places that lie on the fringes of our conscious, accessible only just before sleeping. Cj has worked for Tracks Dance, Corrugated Iron Youth Arts, Palmerston Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, The NT Writers’ Centre and Brown’s Mart Theatre.

Coco Meacham, an illustrator and mixed media artist, explores the peculiar and idiosyncratic voice of the little pudgy man that bashes away at the dusty typewriter in her mind. This transliteration often results in odd and amusing scenarios depicted with a deft hand leading to a rich visual tapestry. Co-creator of Sentenced Zine, which is released annually and features works by emerging artists from around Australia, Coco has also been involved in numerous group exhibitions in Sydney and Darwin as well as art installations and performances at festivals. She takes great satisfaction in being part of the process of a small illustration transforming into a tangible, three-dimensional work.
