Nat Grant is involved in a number of community networks and forums that help strengthen the role of new music throughout different communities, and particularly those that increase the presence of women and gender minority artists in music. A podcaster and programmer for 3CR community radio, Nat is interested in the power of sound and music as storytelling tools. As co-curator for the weekly experimental performance series the Make it Up Club, Nat is invested in creating and maintaining community around sound making. Nat will perform a solo composition for the opening of the Symposium.
An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.
