If you think I have been writing a bit tribally lately, that may be because I’ve been writing some pieces for Radio National’s My Tribe project.
I was chuffed to find out that my story ‘my blogosphere is a rainbow flavoured ice-cream’ (which I blogged about ages ago here) has been selected for the 360documentaries online Showcase.
My blogosphere has expanded since I wrote this piece and today I would have many other bloggers to include. I would put you all in if I could. Maybe I’ll need to write an updated version.
Here is the Showcase. I have a pseudonym in the ABC POOL website (which is where you upload My Tribe stuff) and it is GB.
Many people think I’m a male and a frog.
Here is a bit of information about the My Tribe project, from the 360 website.
‘My pack, my posse, my people, my network, my family, my mob. As human beings we are born to relate to each other and hang out together. 360documentaries is developing My Tribe; a public exhibition that explores identity and community – and we want you to contribute.
