Seesaw’s Co-Managing Editors Nina Levy and Rosalind Appleby were guests on RTRFM, discussing their business journey and the way quality arts journalism helps build a better arts ecosystem for Western Australia.
Seesaw Co-Managing Editors Nina Levy and Rosalind Appleby were thrilled to be interviewed on RTRFM’s Artbeat.
The program focused on how creatives make a living and sustain their work through creative projects. Nina and Ros chatted with Artbeat’s host Bec Bowman on the history and passion behind Seesaw, and how the magazine has grown over four years from a passion project to a not-for-profit business that pays staff and writers. They discuss the diverse funding streams that currently sustain Seesaw including the recently launched Buy Us a Coffee campaign which gives loyal readers the opportunity to show their support.
Like most successful start-ups, Seesaw was launched to meet a need in the market, with the decline of arts journalism, and has attracted a playground full of supporters and champions including an amazing board, wonderful philanthropists and supportive arts organisations. Seesaw’s vision is to ignite conversation about the arts, and it has been wonderful to see this recognised as a crucial part of the arts ecosystem in WA.
