Breakfast Club: Episode 4

Breakfast Club, Episode 4: "The Politicians Have Lost Us: Art, Apathy and Hope." Next Wave’s BREAKFAST CLUB is your early morning shot of artistic and intellectual insight and for the first time ever it’s available as a Podcast series! Tackling big issues from new perspectives you'll hear provocations and insights from Australian artists, writers and creative thinkers. The events in Australia and internationally on Wednesday 27 June demonstrated just how much of circus contemporary politics has become. What next for democracy? What role do artists play in making social change – or just making sense of it all? Join us as we unwind and try to understand our contemporary political landscape, and its effect on creativity, culture and our city’s artists. Guest speakers: Kickstart artists Brienna Macnish and Georgie Mattingley along with political commentator Ben Eltham. Recorded live at Melbourne's The Wheeler Centre as part of Next Wave's Breakfast Club series. For more information on Breakfast Club visit
