Qynn Beardman Qynn Beardman's real strength is bringing people and a vision together. During a varied working life as a guitar player, songwriter, artist, promoter and educator - not to mention wine maker, dad of three and keen fisherman - he has constantly evolved and grown as artist and collector of people. Vast sees Qynn joyfully bringing many of these colours together, to collaborate with a city seeking to consolidate an identity, built from the real treasures that lie in the rugged beauty, heat and open expanse of the Pilbara.

Aimee Chapman Aimee Chapman has spent the better part of 15 years juggling her work as an Event and Project Manager for iconic Melbourne venue’s such as the Palais Theatre and Hisense, Margaret Court and Rod Laver Arenas, alongside her passion for alternative electronic music as a producer, musician and songwriter. Aimee fell in love with the red dirt of the West a few years ago whilst overseeing music workshops in the Kimberly region, so the call to the Pilbara from long-time friend and colleague Qynn Beardman for The Vast Project was too magical to resist.
