On last night’s episode of Something Else, Eastside Radio’s (89.7FM) alternative art & culture show, Julia and I spoke to Sebastian Goldspink, founder and director of Alaska Projects, a Sydney based artist run initiative established to turn the city’s unused or disused spaces into functional art sites. Podcast is available here
Currently housed in the underground space of a Kings Cross car park, Alaska celebrates diversity in artistic expression and hosts an eclectic program of contemporary art ranging across photography, painting, installation, film, performance art, dance, music, etc.
Central to Alaska’s ethos is the provision of space, at no financial cost, to artists as well as unrestrained creativity in how they use and alter the space for their work.
