Exit Interview: Perth Festival's Wendy Martin

Wednesday, February 27, 2019   (0 Comments)

Simeon MoranAs her fourth and final festival nears its end, Wendy Martin, Artistic Director of Perth International Arts Festival in Australia, reflects frankly on her triumphs and challenges in the role. Asked to name a highlight from her time in Perth, Martin said she is deeply proud of the connections the festival has made with Western Australia, Western Australian stories, and Western Australian artists.

With a four-month film season presented as part of the festival, as well as a visual arts program and Perth Writers Week, Martin said she also wanted to bring greater cohesion to the festival program.

"One of the things I wanted to do was break down the silos between those different programs so that they all speak to each other, and I feel that we’ve really done that."
