Next Wave alumni are all over ABC TV (and iView) at the moment!
Former Artistic Director Marcus Westbury (2002-2006) is about to debut his new series, Bespoke. Over the last decade in Australia there’s been a huge growth in the handmade, the locally produced, the artisanal and the small scale. Is it a reaction against technology or the product of it? Alongside this series, Marcus is also about to release his new book Creating Cities, which weaves a story of how identifying and fixing small scale failures in Newcastle led to a larger set of ideas with potential applications in cities and towns around the world.
