Below are some curated Culture Projects

Michelle Hamer on Noe Harsel's Creative Spaces

Creative Spaces

Creative spaces is an online creative exhibition, created because I was (and am) intrigued by the cultural spaces of artists, writers and makers – what makes them tick, and what does their workspaces look like while they are doing it.

Noe Harsel Live Write

Live Write

Since the earliest weeks of COVID, I felt the need to give a creative space for writers of all sorts to be able to connect. I created Live Write, an online space to enable access for regional as well as metro Australians. It has continued twice weekly and developed a strong community, with the odd international visitor joining us. In this space, we have had writers finish novels and win awards!

Why Write

In my endless fascination about the creative process, I developed, created and produced this podcast, Why Write, to find out why writers write. It is only 10 minutes and asks this of some of Australia’s best-known and biggest selling authors.

Sless to Harsel

This short series was a totally irreverent look at the culture of writing, publishing and friendship. Over 2 minutes on video, we would discuss creative ideas and process – and basically have a laugh – as would our very kind and dedicated fans.

To see this series, please watch it here.

Podcast Guest

I was thrilled to be a guest on this episode of the What Would Danbury Do podcast, an internationally loved podcast all about Bridgerton. We covered not only the Netflix drama, but also the broader ideas of privilege, nudity, and Romance tropes.
