Event description

Description

In its annual Honouring Australian Writers series, Writing NSW (formerly the NSW Writers’ Centre) pays tribute to writers who have made an important contribution to our literary culture.

This year we honour Oodgeroo Noonuccal (1920-1993), Australia’s first published Aboriginal poet. Oodgeroo Noonuccal, known publicly as Kath Walker until 1988, when she readopted her traditional name, was also a political activist, educator, and artist. The event celebrating her contribution to Australian literature will include archival materials and presentations from Peter Minter, Evelyn Araluen, and Frank Heimans.

The Honouring Australian Writers series is made possible with support from the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund and the State Library of NSW.

Warning: this event contains images of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
