Six Pillars to Persia – New Directions

Discussion panel with sound artist/broadcaster Fari Bradley, artist/writer Sophia Al Maria and Stephen Beddoe University of the Arts. The discussion was organised by Caspian Arts Foundation and was originally intended to have been chaired by them, however at the last moment Fari had to step in to take the discussion on its course. Topics covered were the physical, psychological and social impact of the age of the internet on art and artists. Eavesdropper /Falgoosh Radio was created by sound artists Chris Weaver and Fari Bradley, as one of the Art Dubai Projects 2013, sponsored by the British Council.
