The Artist’s Role

Jane Caro, Stuart Coupe, Astrid Edwards, Ben Eltham, Greg Fleet

Entertainers or philosophers? Workers or dilettantes? Wise or whimsical? Has the role of the artist evolved along with the changing social landscape? Astrid Edwards hosts a conversation about how writers and other creative people are valued, whether expectations match their lived experience, and where those expectations come from. Is it fair to expect artists to be the conscience of the community?
