Art Can Stay!
by Tim Grey-Smith
This little doco was created last year as a final semester work by Curtin University Film students and being interviewed for it was probably one of the highlights of my time on council. At the time, Fremantle Council had just introduced the highly contentious Street Art Policy, a progressive policy that aimed to differentiate between criminal graffiti and legitimate street art. A differentiation that the police never quite managed to get a grip of.
I also like it because I feature heavily in it, and I still had all my hair at the time.
Slightly old news now, but it didn’t quite get the attention it deserved at the time, and I’m in Broome right now and don’t feel like thinking too much. Enjoy!
