What role do the public broadcaster and the Arts play in maintaining a thriving democracy? What is their role both locally and nationally? How should the Arts and public interest journalism be funded? How do independents support strong communities and a thriving democracy?
This Monday night, 16 May, at 7:30pm join us for a lively panel discussion exploring these questions and more. Nicolette will be leading this discussion and will be joined on the panel by:
- Kerry O'Brien - Prominent Australian journalist and author, who has won 6 Walkley Awards, and a Logie for public Affairs coverage.
- Nate Gilkes - Award-winning musician and Artistic director, he is the Artistic Director at Marian Street Theatre for Young People.
- Lara Merrett - Australian visual artist, winner of numerous art prizes including the recent Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize.
- Cathy McGowan - First independent for Indi, and the first female independent to sit on the parliamentary crossbench.
The conversation will be moderated by Esther Anatolitis, one of Australia's leading advocates for arts, culture, and the creative industries.
