Advocacy, policy and action for an Australian arts sector that's ambitious and fair

Podcast: Political Confusion, Artistic Courage

Tony Albert and Wesley Enoch in conversation with Esther Anatolitis on artists leading the way in identifying Australia’s future directions.

As we hurtle towards state and federal elections whose priorities confuse us more by the day, artists are just getting on with it. Getting on with sustaining their practice, getting on with new projects  – and getting on with it all despite policies that thwart all that hard work. How best can we draw on our collective power to inspire investment in artistic courage

NAVA’s Executive Director, Esther Anatolitis, is in conversation with two of Australia’s most prominent figures in the arts and cultural sector: Noonuccal Nuugi playwright and theatrical director, Wesley Enoch, who has recently drawn to a close the final iteration of a stellar three-year tenure as Artistic Director, Sydney Festival; and internationally renowned Girramay/Kuku Yalanji artist Tony Albert, who on the back of numerous projects and his recent solo exhibition, Visible, at the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, is now preparing for The National 2019: New Australian Art

Recorded live at UTS Gallery, as part of Art Month Sydney Tuesday 19 March 2019.
