By Cathryn Wills

We asked musician Holly Rankin (aka Jack River) + Jess Cochrane to share some of their thoughts on the environment, the human condition, the future + quite simply, how they respond to the noise, through their creativity.  We came away from these chats inspired + uplifted.  Art + music are two powerful mediums for human connection - we could all do with more of these in our lives.

Welcome to Series 04: The Afterglow of Mutiny.  Read about our creative process, our collaborators + why mutiny made it into our vernacular this season.   We shot this campaign in the depths of a Melbourne winter, yet somehow we got the glow going.  As always, we're grateful to the collaborative crew who came together to work on this project with us.  We always ask people to join the (vegan) revolution - and now more than ever, a bit of mutiny may be required.
