The Creative Mycelium podcast
The Creative Mycelium explores the courage, tenacity and generosity of creative practitioners working across the vast and diverse landscapes of regional Western Australia.
We examine individual creative journeys, the dynamics of regionally based arts organisations and the unique communities in which they exist.
It’s a peek into the current social and cultural landscape that overlays the 2.64 million square kilometres of WA’s incredible geography and contested histories.
Podcast presenter and producer, Fiona Sinclair, asks is it possible to foster a sense of creative community that is not defined by your postcode of residence, but a common curiosity about what it means to be human and your willingness to express that creatively and/or support others to do so.
Inspired by Mycelium, the hidden network of fungal fibres that nourish life in natural ecosystems, the podcast aims to foster networks of connection between artists, organisations and their communities to grow more meaningful, multi-directional, exchanges of inspiration, wisdom and resources to yield a more resilient & sustainable arts sector, support personal wellbeing and empower more vibrant regional communities.
An initial pilot has been created. While it's still very much a work in progress and not ready for broadcast yet it begins to give another vehicle for voice with the regional arts community.

Creative Mycelium Pilot
Share your feedback with us
We're looking for feedback on the pilot so that we can begin creating the Creative Mycelium series.
Let us know your thoughts by sending us an email with suggestions.
Before you start...here's something we know - there's inconsistency in sound quality between one speaker and another. Oh Joy!, in the process of doing the pilot Fiona finally worked out how to position her microphone, so that should be resolved for next time.
Big thanks to our guinea pigs
Thanks to Sari, Lewis, Diana and Peter for agreeing to be our crash test dummies.
