Our Team & Credits

Buxton Walker

Michelle Buxton and Andrew Walker love the arts. We work to support artists and create opportunities for artists and audiences to come together. It’s about expression, exploration, wonder and escape for us all.

Buxton Walker manages comedians and musicians. We also own a record label and produce events. Michelle and Andrew both have roles in a variety of community and industry groups with a view to making positive changes.

We think that the pasties at the Yankalilla Bakery are excellent and anything that brings us closer to them is not all bad. We also believe that if you are cold you should put on a jumper.
