In Conversation with Jonathan Craig
Writer, policy adviser, audio producer and accessibility consultant, Jonathan Craig, joins Scotia for a discussion about how disaster planning can be improved by connecting with people as individuals and bringing the lived experience of community members to the table.
Jonathan is a policy advisor for Vision 2020 and has worked with Arts House Melbourne on several projects including Refuge, and the Warehouse Residency program for deaf and disabled artists.
Recently, Jonathan was part of the creative team behind Exercise Torrent – the City of Melbourne’s annual disaster preparedness exercise. He reflects on the project and discusses the windows of opportunity that arts-based approaches can offer into aspects of preparedness sometimes overlooked by traditional processes, like accessibility.
