About Local

‘Local’ is a podcast consisting of conversations with artists living on the Tasmanian West Coast, predominantly Queenstown, and artists’ in residence through both Q-Bank and The Unconformity. The primary focus of the podcast is to examine the role place has in the artists’ work and how it influences their practice. The podcast is a new and valuable narrative and voice emanating from the West Coast. Given that the West Coast is made up of a number of small communities connecting with audiences is extremely relevant here. The discussions critically explore the nature of art making in a provocative wilderness and industrial setting, humanising the experience of living and/or working ‘on the fringe’.
