Podcast recording and meet the artist:

Kirsten Fredericks and Deb Lord - what art can say

2pm, Saturday 10th February

A podcast recording to discuss the politics of the body, and it's impact on the making of art. In more recent months, the deeply personal has become deeply political. We'll be talking about how Australia's current political climate has harnessed deeply personal issues, and turned them into campaigns. With same sex marriage used as a political football, and gender identity questioned and fear instilled, this is a good time to talk about how art can bridge the divide.

Are you confronted? Are you insulted? Are you released?

Art can say and discuss things about the personal and the political that as individuals we struggle to find words. Come and take part in a podcast and ask the questions you didn't think you could.
