Gina Kalabishis has been selected to partake in a 2 week Artist-in-Residence program on the far South Coast of NSW, Australia. Umbi Gumbi has inspired many of Australia’s writers and artists. John Blay, a founder of the cooperative, wrote his first novel, Part of the Scenery while camped out at the Umbi Gumbi dam. Salman Rushdie visited during the time he was in hiding from writing The Satanic Verses. Richard Neville, Martin Sharp and Brett Whiteley - writers, artists and social commentators - all stayed at Umbi Gumbi.
