Name: Evan Morgan
What do you do at Urban Seed? Run sessions, hang out with kids hang out with our regulars.
What kind of music are you into? Doof doof. But all genres can be good.
What’s your stereotype? Hippy probably? I’m really a Brunswick guy. I have dreads, I’m arty, drink a lot of coffee and vote Greens.
Favourite food? Like music, all kinds of food can be done well.
If you could sit down for a coffee with the PM what would you talk about? The intervention into Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory. It was something the Howard government started and while Kevin Rudd apologized for the stolen generation he hasn’t stopped the intervention. An indigenous friend of mine recently implied that more children have been removed from communities through the intervention than were taken during the stolen generation. I haven’t seen the facts on that, but the sentiment is strong. Also, why has Australia never had an indigenous person in the position of Minister for Indigenous Affairs?
Do you have any mad skills? Mixing bangers. But seriously, I can hum and whistle at the same time and harmonise them. I am also a gun at strategy board games and can blow smoke rings.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be and why? John Howard. Because I disagree with so many of his policies but I think it’s good to understand others perspectives and have my beliefs challenged from the source.
What does Urban Seed mean to you? Relationships and the way it values those simple connections. The way it changes society through often undervalued social events.
