Dear friends,

Warm greetings as we gear up for 2021. We hope you managed to find some time to relax and recharge in recent weeks. 

We are very pleased to be starting the year with some optimism and especially look forward to welcoming you back to Curzon Street for face-to-face gatherings soon, albeit smaller gatherings than we are accustomed to. 

Throughout the year we will continue to hold larger public events via zoom while a variety of ticket-limited activities will be held on site in North Melbourne. 

To our Melbourne-based members: Curzon Street is open during business hours Wednesdays and Thursdays, and 2pm to 5pm on Fridays. Our regular small group activities will recommence in coming weeks. For those of you looking for a quiet and supportive environment in which to work, you are welcome to come and spend a few hours a week in the Phillip Darby Reading Room. 

We will shortly write with news about some forthcoming activities and events. In the meantime, our friends at Garland invite you to what promises to be an exciting event, celebrating the recent translation into English of the Mbya Guarani origin story, the Ayvu Rapyta.

We hope to see you soon!
