Welcome to meeting No. 71 of
the Rotary eClub of Latitude 38

October is Rotary's Economic and Community Development Month
Members of the Bali Seminyak Club ask how do we cultivate a love of reading in elementary students? In response to this question, one of the club projects is a school library. On Saturday, 08 October 2016, the club went to visit elementary schools in Baturiti, Kerambitan, Tabanan on the Island of Bali and distributed 1200 books in total. This would certainly deliver great benefits to all students.

This week's meeting material
  • Rotary Club of Bali Seminyak - Kerrie and I visited Bali on 19 October. Here's what Rotary is doing in Bali.
  • The Simple Cure for Loneliness: Baya Voce - Baya Voce is the host of "The Art of Connection", a web series looking to experts from across the globe on how to the live your most fulfilled life. In this TEDx talk, Baya reveals a simple tool you can start using today to create more happiness, fulfillment, and connection.
  • The Fear of Fat – The Real Elephant in the Room: Kelli Jean Drinkwater - We live in a culture where being fat is believed to be universally bad and something to be feared. This fat phobia is keeping many of us, regardless of our size waiting to be the after photo before we truly start to live our lives. Kelli Jean Drinkwater unravels the complex relationship we all have with body size and shows how radical body politics can be the antidote to body shaming culture. Kelli Jean Drinkwater is a multi-disciplinary artist and activist recognized internationally for her creative practice and voice in radical body politics. Kelli Jean uses the fat body as a site to investigate the complex relationship we all have with our bodies and how that defines the world we live in.

    Recurring themes in her work are notions of ‘taking up space’, queering fat embodiment and how this reclamation can transform and reimagine the potential of self and community. Her work is motivated by how these ideas intersect with gender, race, class and ability. Her work has featured in major international galleries, festivals and magazines. Recent performances include Force Majeure’s Nothing to Lose for Sydney Festival 2015, NightCraft for MCA’s Artbar, Tableau Vivant for Underbelly Arts Festival, MonstaGras at The Red Rattler Theatre. Her directorial debut Aquaporko! won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Mardi Gras Film Festival 2013 . She is a resident artist with The Glitter Militia performance collective in Sydney, Australia. Kelli Jean is currently in production on an independent documentary focusing on the cast of Nothing to Lose.
