In the Media
Our centre's members are some of Australia's most outstanding writers, musicians, composers and scholars. As such, they regularly appear in the media, whether it be to perform their own work or to offer astute commentary on a wide range of cultural debates. The JMCCCP's activities - performances, conferences, exhibitions and other public events - also often attract media attention. Here are some examples of our appearances in print, broadcast and online media:
