New Podcast Launch

Australian Design Centre presents a new audio series exploring design and contemporary craft in Australia hosted by CEO and Artistic Director Lisa Cahill.

In Season One, Australia's Living Treasures, we talk to seven acclaimed craft professionals, each with over three decades of experience, to investigate what has driven them to life-time dedication to their craft, is it the material, or process or both? How have they contributed to the arts across their career? And what is their advice for makers who follow in their footsteps?

These talks with jewellers, potters, metalsmiths and textile artists will feature conversations that include personal stories, creative revelations and practical advice that give life and colour to successful careers in contemporary craft.

Featuring conversations with prominent craft professionals including:  Jeff Mincham, Liz Williamson, Marian Hosking, Les Blakebrough, Lola Greeno, Robert Baines, Prue Venables and Brian Parkes (one of the masterminds behind the series).

Release date: 14 October 2021
Episode lengths: 25 mins average

Host: Lisa Cahill
Producer: Jane Curtis
Media and Production Support: Alix Fiveash
