Australia, 2014 Feb – Mar • Nadine Hoover, Sojourning Friend at Silver Wattle

In the midst of the 2014 Friends Peace Team to Indonesia, Nadine took time to visit in Australia.

Mid-February Nadine traveled to Silver Wattle Quaker Centre where she received a writing residency to finish the Discernment Manual and “one glass of water”, including designing a museum exhibition to accompany the publication of “one glass of water”. During her stay there, she joined the Australians in a Friends Peace Teams Gathering to celebrate the Australians joining Friends Peace Teams at our 20th Anniversary and discuss future plans. They also requested a Discernment workshop and she meet with leaders from the Quaker community and the First Nations to share similarities in the conditions in Aceh and First Nations communities.
