Further details

Meet the Maker tours provide a unique opportunity to step inside the workspaces of some of Melbourne’s top professional art and design studios.

Sam Wallman works out of a shared studio for political artists in the South Tower of Trades Hall, which he established early in 2015. His work has appeared in The Guardian (UK and Aus), the ABC, The Global Mail, the Sydney Opera House and Dude Transzine.

Sam’s work is primarily concerned with queer identity, the border, and the way politics intersects with our personal lives. He has self-published five books, including Fluid Prejudice, an anthology of comics and cartoons about marginalised Australian histories, and is currently editing an anthology of comics and cartoons around the topic of 'class'.

This tour provides a fantastic opportunity to learn about Sam’s practice, as well as some of the history of Trades Hall.
