Arts Thursday 3 November.


Cultural Leadership and the Wonders of Lake Eyre






This Thursday, join Maisy Stapleton to meet arts leader Cheryl Stock AM, the Director of Graduate Studies and Head of the Cultural Leadership Course at NIDA, the National Institute of Dramatic Art.

Cheryl is a dancer by training and has had a stellar career as performer, choreographer, artistic director and academic. She has been also instrumental in shaping funding policy and advocating for dance as an art form.

Cheryl speaks about her career, the issues of importance in the arts today and the NIDA course which has been established to support cultural leaders in facing the challenges of managing in the arts.

For further information on NIDA and its courses go to https://www.nida.edu.au/



Also on the program I will be joined by two members of The Light Collective Photographers, who are launching a book and exhibition on Kathi Thanda – Lake Eyre, through aerial photographs which capture the extraordinary beauty and vast scale of this extraordinary site.

The conversation will focus on the tale of their adventure to photograph the site as well as the resulting book and exhibition and future plans to capture the essence of Australia in spectacular images.
