On the Beach is a podcast that is interested in the intersection of contemporary art and fiction. It is a space to record and publish writing that lies between art criticism, fiction, poetry and script writing.

There have been two “seasons” of On the Beach: the first was Ships in the Night, presented as part of Next Wave; and the second, Biennale Fan Fiction about the 20th Biennale of Sydney and presented as part of the Biennale’s project, The Bureau of Writing.

On the Beach is written, edited and produced by Kelly Fliedner. Its website is designed by Rowan McNaught. Its music is created by Ron Koo. It is filled with the voices of friends and loved ones. It is anecdotal. It is abstract. It is a bit romantic. It is good for rainy days. It is good for dreaming of beach getaways.

On the Beach is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria. Initial research for On the Beach was conducted during the London Arts Writers Residency, a program supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, and Acme Studios, London.
