Introducing Your Arts Playground, Seesaw’s new podcast

30 June 2021

Not sure where to find out what’s happening in WA’s arts scene? Feel like you’re always hearing about the cool new shows, concerts and exhibitions after they’ve finished? Check out Your Arts Playground, a new monthly podcast from Seesaw’s managing editors, Nina Levy and Rosalind Appleby.

Join us as we share the very best of WA’s arts scene with you in a fast, fun and furious 15 minutes, jam-packed with everything you need to know about what’s coming up in metro and regional WA. 

We’ve been talking about doing a podcast for a long time, and it’s something our readers have been asking for. We know you want to know what’s coming up and our inboxes are always overflowing with information about exciting new shows. So we thought we’d share them with you.

Your Arts Playground will be hitting your favourite podcasting platform at the start of every month.
