Something Else, your weekly slice of alternative arts, is broadcast live on Eastside 89.7fm in Sydney every Thursday from 6pm to 6.30pm.

What do we mean by alternative arts?
Art is inclusive and everyone has different ideas on what it means. Something Else offers a weekly half-hour slice of alternative arts, where definitions are thrown to the wind, and the creativity of folk is explored. The show facilitates conversations with artists at all stages and experiences of their work with a particular interest in new ways of engaging audiences.

We hope to use this blog as a way of extending the conversations happening on the show so that the audience can get more information about the artists we talk to. The guests can come on to see what other people are doing around Sydney as well and connect with each other. Please feel free to leave comments on your thoughts about the show or anything else to do with arts. Let us know what you think, how you engage with art as an audience, as a practitioner.

For even more events and news, feel free to follow us on twitter @SomethingElse89 and like us on facebook @SomethingElse897. Please feel free to contact us if you’d like to pitch a show or slot!
