JADE LILLIE & LYDIA FAIRHALL / WHAT IT TAKES TO CREATE A COMMUNITY - Audiostage

E"When you're trying to deconstruct the dominant structures, it's not going to happen politely, is it?" - Jade Lillie Welcome to the final episode of the season on race, womanhood, and belonging - and you're in for a real treat. To close a season created in partnership with Footscray Community Arts Centre, we speak with two head ladies of FCAC about the ethos that guides FCAC's work. Departing Artistic Director Jade Lillie, and Head of Programming Lydia Fairhall, discuss white privilege, their personal history with both feminism and decolonisation, and what it really takes to create a community.

It's a hard thing to think about. I'm the first woman in her family to keep her children. I have that luxury. My mother never did. Should I just be out there? Fighting the big fight? I don't know.

What happens when your mother tongue is not your country's national language? What happens when your husband's mother tongue is not your own? What happens when your teacher cannot pronounce your name? What happens when you migrate to a country whose language you resisted learning in school, because it was the language of the coloniser? "Some places in this country have been bleached white. And it's places where we don't recognise Italians and we don't recognise Hungarians, we don't recognise Ar...
