Burley Fisher's Isolation Station

Isolation Station #16 - Wizards and Oz

May 20, 2020

On today's episode we're off to Oz to talk about the importance of fantasy – as a genre, and as a way of imagining otherwise – with Melbournian writer, editor and activist Alison Croggon, whose new children's book The Threads of Magic has just been published in the UK, if you're after pacy escapism with a socialist feminist twist (who isn't)! To talk about what art can do – and so why and how it should be funded – we're also joined by UK-based arts and culture consultant (aka wizard) Rebekah Polding.
