Listening Pod Designed by Eugyeene Teh
Presented by Melbourne Fringe and Arts House
Who are the world’s most brutally honest, insightful and funny critics? Kids, without question. Kids vs Art is a podcast series where children are let loose on the world of contemporary art and performance. We’re handing them microphones and asking them to review and respond to the festival. There’ll be interviews with artists, reviews of shows and an analysis of the festival program, with our young broadcasters’ thoughts and musings available to listen to as a podcast series.
Kids vs Art cunningly disrupts our assumptions and pushes the boundaries between artist and audience, expert and critic. What do children really think about contemporary artistic practice? Do they hate us, or love us? Do we dare to find out?
New podcasts released Thursdays 15, 22 and 29 September
You can also listen to the podcasts at Fringe Hub: Arts House during the Festival from Friday 16 September to Saturday 1 October.
