The Author of Our Bohemian Tour

Cultural historians Tony Moore and John Arnold take us down history’s backstreets in search of our bohemian past and present. 

In 2015 John Arnold worked alongside Tony Moore for a series of Bohemia Walks to coincide with the ‘Bohemian Melbourne’ exhibition, held at the State Library of Victoria.

Dr Tony Moore is an Associate Professor in the Communications and Media Studies Program at Monash University. Tony’s doctoral thesis examined Australia’s bohemian tradition, and was later published as a book Dancing with Empty Pockets. A history of Australia’s most creative and iconoclastic bohemian artists from Marcus Clarke and Dulcie Deamer to the Yellow House and Nick Cave, and an examination of how our counter cultures have changed the way we live - and how we imagine our cities.
