View from the Magpie's Nest Toodyay

Join us for this exciting collaboration as Breaksea spreads the joy of creativity in Toodyay!


What happens when an artist, a poet, a singer, a storyteller and a bunch of extraordinary community members spend time sharing stories & exploring themes of identity, home, the creative spark, kindness and what it means to live a wholehearted life? - VIEW FROM THE MAGPIES NEST.


An experienced and talented collection of artists including Matt Ward, Rachael Colmer, Pia Harris, Tim Dunn and Toodyay locals Emma Pettemerides and Despina Weston, will run open community workshops to develop a new performance work through story-telling, singing, movement and visual arts. The project will take place between October 2021 and March 2022, culminating in a performance on March 19th 2022 in the Toodyay Memorial Hall.


Who is this project for? 

  • Anyone interested in learning new storytelling, singing, art and creative skills.

  • Experienced artists of all disciplines or people excited by creative possibilities.

  • People who are keen to work alongside an experienced team of theatre practitioners and community members.

  • Anyone in Toodyay who wants to be part of shaping a special performance program based on stories of culture, identity, diversity and collaboration. 

No experience is necessary, just an open mind!
