AboutCraig Fossey, Author at The Creative Issue

Craig Fossey

My background is in classical and jazz composition and sound recording. I have also worked in live multimedia production and in broadcasting. However with 8 years in the graphic design and printing industries, my career in the creative industries is pretty broad. As one of the co-directors of the Creative Issue, my objective here is to promote the endeavours and innovation of local artists so that the cultural narrative is better understood by all Australians. In doing so I can only hope that artists' careers are sustainable and society is much more prosperous for having that artwork publicly available.

Ali McGregor speaks with The Creative Issue; as Co-Artistic Director of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2016

June 23, 2015 |

During the final show of the 2015 Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Backstage Club hosted by Lady Rizo, Barry Humphries gave his closing address. As he came to his conclusions, it was his turn to pass the baton of Artistic Director to the recipient for 2016 (or that should be recipient[s]). As integral performers of the 2015 Cabaret Festival, the dynamic pair of Ali McGregor and Eddie Perfect was announced as Co-Directors for 2016. If fans of the festival were excited about the diversity of Humphries’ program this year, then the possibilities for curation next year appear endless. The diversity in McGregor’s CV is outstanding in itself; to combine that with the musical and comedic talents of Perfect bodes well for a really exciting program in 12 months time.

For those who were present almost 12 months earlier, the climatic QPAC black-out during the 2013 Brisbane Sings show was always going to make it difficult to match the drama of last year’s performance. However we were warned early on that this year had been themed around Michael Jackson, so dramatic performance was therefore promised.
