Stuart Buchanan is a cultural programmer, music curator and digital producer.
Born and raised in Scotland, he now lives in the Blue Mountains, on the lands of the Darug people.
Stuart works as Head of Screen for Sydney Opera House and runs the experimental music label New Weird Australia and its companion series, New Editions. He previously founded and curated the Provenance and Wood And Wire record labels, and has programmed many music events across Sydney.
As a broadcaster, Stuart has presented programs on ABC Double J, FBi Radio and UK station Resonance FM, and was the recipient of a National Community Broadcasting Award for ‘Excellence In Music Programming’. He was formerly Chair of Underbelly Arts Festival and a Management Committee Member of FBi Radio.
In 2010 Stuart co-founded The Nest, an award-winning digital creative agency for the arts and creative industries, which was acquired by Frost in 2014.
Although Scottish, he is not the Scottish visual artist Stuart Buchanan, nor has he written books about lighthouses, nor was he a voice actor for Disney. But those Stuart Buchanans are most likely great.
