Glenn Watson - Co-founder & Director of Operations, Strange

Glenn is the co-founder and the Director of Operations for Strange, an annual arts festival in Perth. Taking place over 10 days, the festival transforms vacant spaces in the CBD and showcases artists of all disciplines. With a focus on unconventional content, Strange gives emerging artists a platform to display their work to a large audience. In its second year, Strange 2023 featured over 40 visual artists, 40+ musicians, performing artists, and a pop-up cinema. The festival attracted an estimated 78,000 patrons, proving there is a demand for the weird and unusual in Perth's event calendar.
