Artists on your radar, shout them out!

So many at the moment doing crazy different things...
Heres just a few movers, shakers and art makers to check out at the moment: Lea Tirabasso, Tito Bone, Grace Nicol, Thick and Tight, Nicola Gali, Roy Assif, Nell Brookfield, BYFYN, Samir Kennedy and Joe Bloom.

Which is your number one location - and what's it best for?

It has to be The Yard for the eclectic variety. Go and support some great independent dance, theatre, DJ sets and whatever else they feel like playing with. Safe to say it's programming I take a risk on and it pays off.

'Getting creative', what's it all about?


Your Life, Right Now - what's the soundtrack?

Robyn, George Fitzgerald, FKA twigs, The Police - the list goes on...

What is your idea of a jolly good time?

I mean it probably wouldn't be 'jolly'

What happened the last time you were a complete disgrace?

I'm not sure I know you well enough to divulge yet.
