Judy Gordon, The Worktown Festival
[Mandy Coe's] time spent working in schools, museums and galleries creating educational material and running workshops with people of all ages has given her a universal sensibility. However sophisticated her ideas – and they are sophisticated – Coe writes with a colour, clarity and simplicity that excludes no one.
