The cover image was produced by Astra Howard, an Action Researcher/Performer currently living in Sydney Australia. Spanning more than a decade, her work has sought to elicit and document marginalised, or overlooked, experiences and discourses of the city. The specific image I have chosen is part of a series entitled 'Kings Cross the Whisper.' This series displays selections from a poem about the Kings Cross area that was written by a local socially marginalised man. The image alludes to forgotten histories and marginalization in an increasingly homogenised and gentrified part of Sydney.
