John Dunn & Margaret Bishop

No_Surrender_1833–2015

John Dunn & Margaret Bishop are partners in crime, campaigners, house restorers, art publishers, artists and firm Friends of Millers Point. Turning over their home’s façade on Lower Fort Street as a permanent display, the former art teachers continue to undertake all manner of activities and initiatives to support the community, to defend their neighbours right to stay and to maintain the diversity of Millers Point. Margaret is part of Choir Rocks and the couple were instrumental in the planning of The Point is art exhibition. Eighteen Months is a collection encompassing their community with photo-documentation and Facebook posts by John, with artwork and handmade banners by Margaret that reference the history through the timelessness of lace and needlecraft.
