Event description

Description


The Writers and Readers Festival is a non-profit community event featuring indigenous writers, and writers from different cultural backgrounds who will speak about the concept of Identity in their work.
It is an opportunity for the community to broaden their knowledge and explore diverse issues, as authors share stories about being Indigenous, or of a European background, having a physical difference or living with a mental illness...things that set them apart from society. By claiming a voice well beyond societal expectations, or searching for roots in the past to explain the present, the writers will explore these issues in an engaging and creative way
Participants will hear extraordinary stories and brave voices, dealing with loss and discovery of identity whilst searching backgrounds, plus tackle issues and ideas through conversation and connection across cultural divides.


Speakers : Bruce Pascoe, Alexis Wright, Tony Birch, Ramona Koval, Andy Jackson and Sandy Jeffs
