Peter Breen was born in Melbourne, Australia and completed high school [ Brisbane State High School] in 1968 after moving to Queensland in the early 60’s. He trained in Medical Radiography at RMIT [Melbourne] completing a number of appointments at Prince Henry’s Hospital [ now Monash Medical Centre] Prince Charles, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and in private practice with Queensland Diagnostic Imaging. He also served in Cambodia as a radiographer with World Vision during the Vietnam/Cambodia conflicts. After theological training, he entered pastoral work from 1982 – 2003 with parish leadership responsibilities in Bundaberg and Everton Hills. It was during his time at Everton Hills that Jugglers was conceived of with two of his sons and two other friends and begun in 1998. After leaving parish leadership in 2003, Jugglers was launched at 103 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley where it remained until 2018. Jugglers continues to provide consulting services, studio spaces at Tarragindi, a national drawing prize – Marie Ellis OAM Prize for Drawing and The Stairwell Project. The Stairwell Project was developed out of Peter’s awareness that stress and anxiety can be reduced and well-being enhanced in hospital spaces for staff, patients and the general public by the presence of performing professional musicians. The project now in its 4th year is present in the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and St Vincent’s Hospital. It is partly funded via public appeals and at RBWH is subsidised by the RBWH Foundation. Peter has been married to Mavis [ Maeve] for 45 years and has 4 children and 8 grandchildren. Since leaving organised religion, Peter has also been developing his own arts practice and is currently developing a body of work around his perceived religious constructs and their affects.
