In Conversation with June Moorhouse
June Moorhouse, co-CEO of Community Arts Network (CAN) joins us for a deeply insightful discussion about community arts in Australia.
From its roots in the social activism of the 1960s and the early international community arts movement through to contemporary practice and its vital role in creating social cohesion, June reflects on the joys and challenges of community-based practice and shares her hopes for the future of the sector.
June and Scotia’s conversation is grounded in the findings of a collaborative research project between CAN and CRN and the six recommendations in their recently released report, ‘Creating Well: Recommendations for Practitioner Wellbeing in the Community Arts and Cultural Development Sector”.
June has more than 35 years experience in the arts, working in senior management and leadership roles, most recently leading the team at CAN in an innovative job sharing arrangement with her colleague Monica Kane.
June has a wealth of experience to share for anyone working, or interested in working, in community-based practice.
