• Summary

  • If you love the arts and you’re interested in Western Australia, then this is the podcast for you! Presented by Seesaw, WA’s premiere online arts magazine https://www.seesawmag.com.au/, Your Arts Playground is a fast and furious 15 minutes, jam-packed with everything you need to know about what’s coming up in metro and regional WA. Each month Seesaw editors Rosalind Appleby and Nina Levy will be sharing their hot tips on what shows, concerts and exhibitions are coming up. Whether you’re frustrated because you always hear about the cool shows after they’ve finished, or you just want to get more arts in your life, Your Arts Playground has you covered. This podcast was recorded on Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar by Nina Levy and Rosalind Appleby and mixed by Gemma King. The theme music, "Newsy Hipster", is by Josh Hogan and Ned Beckley of Envelope Audio. We acknowledge the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which we gather today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

    On the eve of the reopening of the Art Gallery of WA, Director Colin Walker gives us a peek behind the scenes: what to expect, why there were delays and how the new-look gallery has put WA artists front and centre. The transformation of the Art Gallery of WA includes over 100 new commissions plus a $10 million new rooftop bar area with an interior gallery, an outdoor sculpture walk, and a 34 metre contemporary Aboriginal art piece. Colin Walker talks us through what to expect as the Gallery reopens, and how the vision to make the building more welcoming has gone deeper than just bricks and mortar.
