In conversation with the Australia Council

Explore social cohesion, mental health and wellbeing, economic recovery and more

Over three nights we engaged with experts exploring social cohesion, mental health and wellbeing, economic recovery and more, in our new series In Conversation with the Australia Council series.

In Episode 1 George Megalogenis and Dr Wendy Were explore the economic, social and cultural value of creativity for all Australians.

Georgie Harman, CEO, Beyond Blue and Adrian Collette AM discuss the arts and the mental health sectors' joint goals in episode 2, sharing examples of how working collaboratively can help to meet major challenges regarding ageing, loneliness, long term conditions and mental health.

Join Shane Fitzsimmons and Lydia Miller in episode 3 as they examine how in rebuilding, recovery and resilience, creativity can connect us and help us ensure our nation’s future success. One year on from the devastating 2019-20 Australian bushfires, and amid the continuing challenge of the global pandemic, arts and creativity have been crucial to the recovery of our communities.
