June Hickey, host of Urban Theatre Projects' "Talk Show"
"Talk Show: Celebrate Creative Ageing"
Panel Discussion Presented By Urban Theatre Projects
The final session of the conference is presented by Urban Theatre Projects and hosted by 81-year-old June Hickey from UTP’s "Talk Show". June is testament to just how creative you can be in your 80s. With a wry sense of humour, June will facilitate a conversation with four of our guest speakers.
June Hickey (1935) has lived in Minto for 31 years. She is a keen gardener and loves bush walking. She has a Jack Russell terrier called Harry who keeps her on her toes and two kids Kathryn and Richard. June became an emerging artist at 75, when she met performance maker Rosie Dennis and performed in her first show, "Driven To New Pastures" for Sydney Festival in 2011. "Talk Show" is her third collaboration with Rosie, following "Life As We Know It" in 2013, and the first in which she has taken a principal role.
