In 2021, Flinders University delivered a huge 13-week series of Fearless Conversations. Bringing together industry leaders and our researchers, the series fearlessly discussed the challenges that face our world and the opportunities available.
The conversations inspired, informed and advocated for our state in a fearless way – encouraging us to work together to ensure we emerge stronger.
In 2022, Fearless Conversations continued to tackle a broad range of topics, diving deep into areas such as health, science, politics, the arts, our environment and more, in order to shine an uncompromising light on the issues that affect us all.
Watch our very special final Fearless Conversation for 2022 as we explore the cultural and social shifts on the Australian mainstage and the increased demand for authenticity in performance over the past decade.
Our esteemed panel examined the identity positions of the artists, directors and producers themselves, and how the stories they tell and work they deliver has evolved to meet the needs of an industry seeking to centre diverse stories.
Flinders University is represented by Professor of Drama Dr Chris Hay, an Australian theatre and cultural historian along with Gaelle Mellis, Creative Director of Tutti Arts, Nescha Jelk, Director of Single Asian Female, as well as Carissa Lee, a Noongar actor, writer and editor born on Wemba-Wemba country.
