Breastique Art

Whether you have two breasts, one breast, or both breasts removed, you can make the most incredible art with your body.

About Us

Shiona preparing a canvas….
Let's start off with a story...

In January 2009 I hosted a housewarming party in Stirling, inviting dear friends to bring their energy and love into my new home. Standing in the courtyard was a white canvas that guests were encouraged to paint to remind me of the great night we had.

Throughout the evening, friends offered splashes of colour, shapes, stripes, etc, but a cheeky friend however, caused quite a stir when she said she was going to paint the canvas with her breasts! We looked at her dumbfounded – we're all quite liberal minded, but we don't get our 'assets' out at the drop of a hat, so we watched intently to see how she was going to achieve such a task.

With great gustso, she whipped off her top, plonked some paint on her breasts and then pressed herself up against the canvas. We all held our breath as she peeled herself off to reveal two large circular imprints that looked like to two big happy eyes!

Everyone was impressed by this random act of freedom and creativity,
and it created quite a buzz in for the rest of the evening.

For quite some time after, our close-knit group would talk about how fun and liberating it must have been to paint with breasts rather than a brush, so I made the suggestion that we all get together for a workshop and BYO our own canvas and paints and do some 'breast art.' This was met met with inspired smiles and nodding of heads at this which spurred on my next idea: "How about we sell the breast art we create and give proceeds to a breast cancer charity?" The crew responded with: "YEAH, LET'S DO THAT!" And so Breastique Art was born.

Many of us who brainstormed the Breastique Art concept could relate to breast cancer on a very personal level. We had all known someone who had died from breast cancer or who were receiving treatment for it, and many of us had already experienced the fear and dread of having a breast lump examined.

For me on a personal level, my I felt a real sense of loss when my Aunt Marion died of breast cancer. 'Mazz', as I used to call her, was a vibrant, cheeky lady who always saw the bright side of life. She never cared if she looked silly while enjoying herself, she just wanted to create a fun, dynamic, space wherever she went. Even during her last days, she talked about all the things she was grateful for and continued to focus on the positives in her life.

Breastique Art reveals my Aunt Mazz's attitude toward living by highlighting the fun and creativity of life, not caring about looking silly, but honouring what we've lost while celebrating what we still have.

Our connection to art recognises that art is often unique: no two pieces of art are the same, just like our breasts. Breasts are all different shapes and sizes and we are all magnificent in our uniqueness.

Charity Link is a collaborative charity organisation which provides the framework for more than one hundred West Australian charities to work together and as such, make the biggest difference possible to thousands of disadvantaged West Australians.

Established in 2001, Charity Link is a registered charity which acts as a central fundraising and coordinating body to provide material aid via our 100+ ‘member’ charities to West Australians experiencing financial hardship and/or crisis.

By working together and using a collaborative approach, Charity Link is able to minimise the cost of fundraising, increase purchasing power, reduce duplication in competition for funds and therefore ensure the optimal use of resources.  By using this approach alleviates the pressure experienced by our members and so allows them to focus on their core services.

The innovative, yet logical, approach used by Charity Link is unique to Western Australia and is embraced by Lotterywest who generously provide an annual grant to cover Charity Link’s administration costs.  This grant means Charity Link can guarantee 100 per cent of all donations and sponsorships are directed to the purchase of material aid for all appeals

Our vision is to create a future where all West Australians to have “necessities of life”.  As such, Charity Link aims to foster an environment of team work by adding value to those organisations supporting families and individuals in crisis, while promoting opportunities for all Western Australians to be involved in our appeals.

Cleft Palate and Lip Society of Western Australia

CleftPALS WA is a voluntary support group consisting of parents of children born with a cleft, adults born with a cleft and professionals who care for children born with cleft conditions. Our motto is the 'sharing helps'. We understand the difficulties, heartache and sometimes the shock that comes with having a child with a cleft lip/and or palate and are keen to help you as best we can.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Disabilities,Mental Health




The Cleft Palate and Lip Society (CleftPALS) was established to provide support, reassurance, and knowledge to parents and their families of a child born with a cleft condition. This was the vision when the support group seed was planted. The seed has grown over the years with branches in most states around Australia.

Way back in 1974, the days of flares and free love, CleftPALS was born in NSW. It all started when two friends had babies with a cleft at the same time. The friendship and support that they gleaned from each other was so helpful that they decided to share it with other parents.

In Western Australia it pretty much started the same way as in NSW.

The beginnings of CleftPALS WA harks back to 1971/72 and an orthodontist by the name of Dr William Brogan who suggested to the mum of a cleft-affected child getting all the other parents of cleft-affected children together on a regular basis for moral support and discussion forums.  Flyers were put up at Dr Brogans private rooms and soon there was enough interest to hold the first meeting, held with the kind continuing support of Dr Brogan at his private residence.  Turnout steadily increased to the point where a hall was hired to cater for all the interested people.
However the CleftPALS motto "The Sharing Helps" can be traced back even further to unsung everyday heros like local GP's who were the front-runners to the formalisatisation of such support groups, be it CleftPALS or other similar parent support organisations.  One such example was in the middle of the swinging 60's when a Carlisle GP noted that two of his patients were mums of cleft-affected children (born a few years apart) and only lived a few doors away from each other on the same street.  He recognised the benefit of introducing the mother of the older child to the mother of the 2 month old baby preparing for her child's first repair surgery, as bewildering and stressful today as it was back then!  At the doctors request Judy duly dropped by for a cuppa and a chat armed with pictures of her cleft-affected son, helping put Jessie's mind at ease as to what her and her daughter were about to undergo.  Jessie too saw the value of sharing and demystifying the journey to other mums and hence was one of the initial members of CleftPALS WA "paying it forward".
So, long before "The Sharing Helps" officially became the motto of CleftPALS WA there were people already living by its mantra.

The actual Cleft Palate and Lip Unit was started by Mr Harold McComb (Plastic Surgeon) in the mid 1950’s at Princess Margaret Hospital. Dr William Brogan (Orthodontist) later joined him in the 1960’s.  They were infact channelling our motto “The Sharing Helps” and putting it out there, connecting mums to share and discuss long before the formal creation of CleftPALS WA.

Danza Viva Spanish Dance Academy

Founded in 1984 by Deanna Blacher, Danza Viva has become synonymous with Spanish Dance in Australia and abroad and is one of the few organisations of it's kind outside of Spain to incorporate in its program, the full range of Spanish dance styles from classical through to flamenco.


  • Arts:Performing Arts


Founded in 1984 by Deanna Blacher in Perth, Western Australia, Danza Viva consists of:

An Academy, which offers a unique training program of structured courses, in conjunction with repertoire and advanced technique,

A professional Company, (Danza Viva Spanish Dance Company), comprising mostly talented students and ex-students from the Academy, whose level of expertise and desire to continue on the path to excellence permits them to attain the highest degree of professionalism, and

Aire Youth Spanish Dance Company, which aims to provide a platform for young dancers and choreographers in a professional environment.

Danza Viva has become synonymous with Spanish Dance in Australia and abroad and is one of the few organisations of it's kind outside of Spain to incorporate in its program, the full range of Spanish dance styles from classical through to flamenco.

Introducing Deanna Blacher
Drawn to the exacting discipline of the Spanish dance in its manifold forms, Deanna Blacher, founder of Danza Viva, has devoted a lifetime to the study, teaching, performing and choreography of Spanish dance.

As pedagogue, she has worked tirelessly to advance the interests of Spanish dance (some of her lectures on the subject have been published at university level). She was a guest teacher in Spanish dance for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Canada, and performed innumerable solo dance recitals in South Africa, Australia, Europe and North America.

Deanna Blacher's teachers include, inter alia, Elsa Brunelleschi, Victoria Eugenia and nearly all of the great teachers of the 20th century. Amongst them are the incomparable La Quica, her daughter and son in law, Mercedes y Albano, El Guito, Ciro, Paco Fernandez, Jose Antonio, Jose Granero, Alberto Lorca, Maria Magdalena, Flora Albaicin, Victoria Eugenia, Regla Ortega, Isabel Quintero, Luisa Pericet, Matilda Corral, Manolo Marin and Merche Esmeralda.

In addition, Deanna studied Jota with famed jotero Pedro Azorin and undertook extensive study with Juanjo Linares in the regional dance of Spain. She had the rare distinction of being invited to travel with him to outlying villages to research the folklore and folk dance traditions of communities well away from the tourist circuit. She vividly recalls rising at 4am in the depths of winter in order to catch a 5am bus or train to anywhere from Cuenca to Burgos to Huelva or Segovia. These trips were immensely useful in providing insights to Spain, the Spanish soul and the Spaniards as a people, quite apart from their glorious dance tradition, that are not ordinarily available to foreign dancers in Spain.

Deanna Blacher has danced the title role in Lorca's Yerma in Goyo Montero's choreography of the Lorca drama. Amongst Deanna Blacher's many talents, her individual performances as a castanets virtuoso or her productions as a choreographer, are legend.

As the only acknowledged castanets virtuoso in Australia, and one of a handful of such artists worldwide, Deanna Blacher, who has been critically acclaimed internationally for her work in this area - i.e. in elevating the castanets to virtuoso solo status in the concert hall - continues to devote herself to expanding her repertoire of works for castanets and orchestra , and, through more recent concertising - both with recitals with piano and as a soloist with orchestra - to bring her work to as wide a public as possible.

She first developed the castanets as a solo instrument with American pianist Michael Isador in South Africa, and her first performance as a castanets soloist was with the Cape Town Symphony Orchestra, followed by innumerable appearances with other orchestras, amongst which, the Residencie Orchestra of The Hague, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (at the invitation of Zubin Mehta), the Israel Chamber Orchestra (a series of six concerts), the Israel Sinfonietta, the WA Symphony Orchestra, the Tasmania Symphony Orchestra, and premieres of orchestral works especially written for her by composers from Spain (under the baton of Enrique Garcia Asensio), South Africa and England.

Besides these performances, Deanna Blacher performed in countless solo castanets recitals with pianists Alan Sternberg (America), Ya'ara Tal and Zmira Lutsky(Israel), Jean Roberts (America), and radio broadcasts in both South Africa and Israel. She also performed the complete Danzas Espanolas by Granados, in a version for castanets and piano which was a first for Australian music and dance lovers.

Deanna Blacher the Choreographer, on the other hand, has to her credit hundreds of works created for a vast gamut of styles, from the purely traditional Spanish idiom, to major orchestral works in both Spanish and non Spanish repertoire. She has choreographed extensively for the Danza Viva Spanish Dance Company in numerous seasons in Perth and on tour throughout WA and Australia, for the State Opera of South Australia (Carmen) and for the Hong Kong International Festival of Dance Academies.

Deanna Blacher has done more than anyone before her to place Spanish dance firmly on the arts map of Western Australia, from which base she frequently travels interstate and overseas in a number of dance capacities. Her system of graded Spanish dance examinations is being increasingly adopted both in Australia and abroad.

Working for a future free from poverty

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Housing & Homeless



How we work

We’ve been fighting poverty and injustice for more than 50 years. But what exactly does this mean?

Contributing to long-term development

Poor people can take control, solve their own problems, and rely on themselves – with the right support. We fund long-term projects around the world and work in a range of areas, from water and sanitation to education and health, to bring about positive change in people’s lives.

Campaigning for change

Poverty isn’t just about lack of resources. In a wealthy world it’s about bad decisions made by powerful people.

We form part of a global movement of people committed to achieving a fairer world by:

  • Partnering with Australians to campaign on the issues that matter – more than 50,000 Australians took action with us in the 2010/2011 financial year
  • Empowering communities in developing countries to realise their rights and improve their lives
  • Engaging with organisations and governments to change policies that cause poverty and inequality

Responding to emergencies

People need help in an emergency – fast. We save lives, swiftly delivering aid, support and protection; and we help people prepare for future crises. Right now, we’re responding to these emergencies around the world.

All of our work seeks one overall outcome: to bring about positive change in the lives of people living in poverty.

Our approach

Our work with people living in poverty is guided by a rights-based approach – the belief that every human being has rights and that these rights are inalienable, universal, indivisible and interdependent. We believe that respect for human rights will help lift people out of poverty and injustice, allow them to assert their dignity and bring about sustainable development.

Our work is focused on four goals:

1. Economic Justice

We support people to make a decent living, leading dignified lives free from poverty and hunger.

2. Essential Services

We help people to access clean water, healthcare, education and sanitation.

3. Rights in crisis

We support people to live safe from war, violence and natural disaster.

4. Gender Justice

We support women and men to enjoy equal rights, and live free from violence and discrimination.
