Off the Deep End

Depressing news on the grapevine today - ABC Radio National is axing its popular daily arts program The Deep End. Which means, aside from The Book Show, no daily arts on the ABC anywhere, and nothing, aside from Julie Copeland's Exhibition A, that talks regularly about the performing arts. One more nail in the coffin of mainstream arts coverage. So much for the ABC charter.

More thoughts on the dwindling public space for contemporary arts and artists, and the significance of this, soon.

We live in crazy depressing times, no? I'll be sad to see the Deep End go. And I appreciated your piece on La Mama - thanks.
