Prompted by the Wheeler Centre’s latest Signal Boost Competition I created this 3-minute audio response to the theme ‘space’ – exploring spaces that influenced the way I am today.

1) Being a 12-pound baby born in regional NSW nicknamed “Baby Elephant” by the nurses.
2) Christmas and Camping
3) St Kilda – Moving Out
4) Bangkok, supporting refugees
5) Himalayas, finding peace.
These are explored in more depth in my memoir which you can pre-order here. https://daizymaan.com/quarterlifecrisis/

Your pre-orders mean the world to me and keep me accountable for finishing this book project which I’ve been working on for a few years.

I’m not sure if I’ll be successful in this competition, but the process of creating it has been wonderful – remember it doesn’t matter if you don’t get the validation you seek – create because you can, because our voices, our art & our stories matter.

A huge shout out to my new friend Snehil from Wolverhampton who gave me advice on the sound aspects of this. You can show him some love by following him over on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/2nvmusic/
