International Women’s Day 2021 special


A special 90 minute program in celebration of International Women’s Day 2021.

On the program we feature women in the arts.  Fiona Mcgregor has published six books, who most recent is Buried Not Dead, a collection of essays on art, performance, sexuality, activism and the hidden life of the city, through portraits of the artists, writers, dancers, tattooists and DJs that have made their mark on the culture over the past thirty years.  

Arts reporter Regina Botros speaks to Ruth Aria, an artist who is one of 16 artists whose work will feature at Artspace as part of the Get Out of Garrett project an initiative of the Western Sydney cultural program Front Up.

Acting CEO of the National Association for the Visual Arts Penelope Benton talks us through the ambitious revising of the Code of Practice for the Professional Australian Visual Arts, Craft & Design Sector sets the national best practice standards for the sector, providing a set of practical and ethical guidelines for the conduct of business between art, craft and design practitioners and galleries, agents, dealers, retailers, buyers, sponsors and partners, commissioners, employers and the managers of residencies, workshops, competitions, prizes and awards, and more.

In the last half-hour of the program we hear Australian women poets and their poetry.
