Overview

When the world turns on its head, what role can art and culture play in helping us come to terms with what’s happened and find a new path forward?

On December 16, a special episode of The Conversation Weekly podcast, supported by the British Council as part of its UK/Australia season, will explore these issues through the research and stories of three academics. We’ll hear from photographer Cherine Fahd about her new photoshoot project in the Parramatta City suburb of Sydney. From comedy scholar Angelina Hurley on the healing role of Indigenous art, and what she learnt from her father, the Aboriginal artist Ron Hurley. And from theatre expert Kirsty Sedgman on her research into the history of Bristol’s Old Vic theatre and its rebirth after the second world war, which heralded the launch of public funding for the arts in England through the Arts Council.
