In conversation with Jeremy Smith
This month, we speak to Jeremy Smith as he exits his tenure with the Australia Council where he has worked as Director – Community, Emerging and Experimental Arts for the past four years.
Scotia caught up with Jeremy just ahead of his return to his hometown of Perth and a new role with the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts.
They discuss Community Arts and Cultural Development practice, the importance of what CACD has brought to other sectors and the innovation and creative thinking that artists bring to the table in a variety of corporate and and creative contexts.
Jeremy shares insights from his experience working across festivals, youth arts, community, First Nations and regional arts development projects in a range of creative and management roles.
He also shares his self-care tips and the importance of living room dance sessions for getting through quarantine.
