Jonathan Holloway has an impressive track record as an artistic director, both in the UK and Australia, where his four years directing the Perth International Arts Festival are often prefaced with the words ‘highly successful’.
But the new Artistic Director of Melbourne Festival has some counter-intuitive advice for others developing a career in the arts. He speaks about success as one possible outcome rather than a goal.
