CHRISTIAN BONNEFOI has had over 100 solo exhibitions in Europe, Asia, USA and Australia since 1977. He had the honour of a major retrospective at the Pompidou museum in Paris in 2008. Bonnefoi lives and works in France. This is his fourth solo exhibition at Annandale Galleries.View Exhibition

Join Phyl & Paul, masters of parody (& other good songs!) - BYO parody & book your spot now.

Parodies Past & Present with Phyl Lobl & Paul Spencer & a cast of thousands. Phyl has been writing parodies for around 50 years, Paul for a shorter period but they are both master songwriters & why should parodies whose day has gone be forgotten? Tonight we will hear historical & current songs from Phyl & Paul & audience members.

Phyl Lobl is a singer - songwriter - teacher who has been active as a performer at Folk Festivals, mainly in Australia, since just before the first National Folk Festival 1967. She thinks of herself as a Cultural Maintenance Worker who documents the Australian Experience through folklore. As is said in the folklore world, some of her songs have 'entered the tradition', some have been recorded here and overseas, some have been used by authors to illustrate their work which makes them useful. She fought for recognition for Australian Folk music on the Music Board of the Australia Council, for this the Folk Community presented her the Graham Squance Memorial Award in 1986.

Paul Spencer writes quirky comic political folk songs to entertain the activist in you or re-energise the jaded cynic (and sometimes to indulge the cynic, for a bit of fun). Using some folk tunes and some original tunes, Paul’s songs come from the human experience of the social change movement and of living in a world that’s so beautiful, so alarming and so inspiring all at the same time.

Margaret & Bob Fagan + Gerry Myerson

@ The Loaded Dog *Support - Gerry Myerson*
8pm Saturday 24th June, 2017 (doors open 7.40pm)

Margaret & Bob Fagan began their musical journey together in Canberra in the late 1960s. Since then they have been based in Sydney, but are now resident in the Blue Mountains. They perform at all the major festivals around Australia, both as a duo and as members of their family band, /The Fagans/. Their strong blend of politically-edged traditional and contemporary songs combined with lyrical ballads and great choruses is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Their repertoire is firmly rooted in the folk tradition, with Margaret’s pure voice and Bob’s superb guitar playing combining to ensure their popularity both here and abroad.

*Support - Gerry Myerson*
If unaccompanied singing were like tightrope-walking without a net, Gerry Myerson would spend most of his days in hospital. Instead, he's able to offer audiences anything from Child ballads to childish parodies learned in the schoolyard, from traditional songs of the Appalachians to protest songs of the 1960s, from Tom Lehrer to Stan Rogers, and back again. A mild-mannered Mathematics lecturer by day, he becomes a mild-mannered folksinger by night. A firm believer in starting at the top, his first paying gig was at the National Folk Festival, as the taller member of the father-daughter duo, /B'seder/.

Enda Kenny & Dave O'Neill + Glenys Eddy

Enda Kenny* is an Irish-born songwriter who has made his home in Melbourne since the late 1980's. His thoughtful, descriptive stories of his adoptive homeland have struck a chord with festival audiences all over Australia and are always memorable and spiced with plenty of humour. Enda has toured with superb multi-instrumentalist Dave O'Neill since last year.

support *Glenys Eddy*
Glenys is a local singer-songwriter who has had a love of music for as long as she can remember. She sings with two local choirs: Solidarity Choir and Ecopella, and is involved with the Addison Road Sessions, the monthly singing sessions held at the Bush Music Club Hut at the Addison Road Community Centre. Glenys performs both traditional and contemporary folk songs, and will be sure to include a chorus or two!

Damning Audit into Approval and Administration of Commonwealth Funding for the WestConnex Project

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

...The upfront payment and approach to agreeing and adjusting milestones for later payments did not adequately protect the Australian Government’s financial interests. Additionally, the provision of the concessional loan did not achieve the Australian Government’s objective of bringing Stage 2 of the project forward by approximately two years.
7. The WestConnex project had not proceeded fully through the established processes to assess the merits of nationally significant infrastructure investments prior to Australian Government funding being committed. This situation was identified in departmental advice to decision makers prior to decisions being taken.
8. Funds have been paid in advance of project needs. Advice provided prior to the first payment (of $500 million in June 2014) identified that a payment of that magnitude was not yet required. The ANAO estimates that as of November 2016, the total cost of amounts provided in excess of project needs since June 2014 has been approximately $20 million.
9. The May 2014 decision to make the $500 million advance payment led to the project being approved without there being any documented analysis and advice to Ministers that the statutory criteria for giving such approvals had been met. Advice seeking the necessary approval for later payments (of $250 million in June 2015, $450 million in June 2016 and $300 million in November 2016) addressed those criteria. But those three milestone payments were designed and administered in a way that did not adequately protect the Australian Government’s financial interests. This was because, in order not to delay payments, milestones were agreed to after the respective event had already occurred or amended shortly before the payment was due to be made where NSW had not met the milestone.
10. Departmental advice to Ministers focused on the benefits of providing a concessional loan to the WestConnex project. The key benefits identified were the:
lower net financial impact on the presentation of the Federal Budget of a loan compared with further grant funding (due to the differences in the accounting treatment of loans and grants, and because a loan would earn interest income and be later repaid);
increased construction activities between 2015‒16 and 2016‒17 from accelerating the second stage; and
potential to reinvigorate the private sector lending market in relation to demand risk toll roads.
11. But the advice to Ministers did not adequately identify or quantify the costs and risks associated with providing a concessional loan. Key issues that detract from the loan providing value for money include:
there is evidence that the loan was not needed to accelerate the second stage of WestConnex and, in any event, the project has not been accelerated to the extent projected by DIRD (by up to two years); and
the interest rate on the loan was set well below comparable market rates with no margin included to cover the Australian Government’s loan administration costs or risks....more

The objective of this audit is to assess whether appropriate steps were taken to protect the Commonwealth's interests and obtain value for money in respect to the $3.5 billion in Commonwealth funding committed to the NSW Government for the WestConnex project...more

Emily Loa wrote of her work: "The Inner West is home to a unique variety of Australian flora. This artwork celebrates the beauty and diversity of the native flora that can be found in each of the Inner West wards - Gumtree in Balmain, Yellow Yarrow in Leichhardt, Wooly Bush in Stanmore, Leucadendron in Ashfield, and Eucalyptus Leaf in Marrickville."

Tunnel Midpoint Annandale (formerly Camperdown)

"WestConnex would like to correct some misinformation about the potential Camperdown mid-tunnel construction site:
.The midpoint tunnel site at Camperdown will require part of the 'triangle area' bordered by Parramatta Road, Pyrmont Bridge Road and Mallet Street in Camperdown [ACTUALLY ANNANDALE since 1995]
.Construction traffic will not use Booth Street
.Parramatta Road will be our key traffic route. Traffic will enter the site via Parramatta Road and exit near the corner of Parramatta Road and Pyrmont Bridge Road
.Surface construction hours will be standard construction hours (consistent with Stage 1 and Stage 2 of WestConnex) which are 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays"...more
