Event description

Description

45-65% of Aboriginal adults in Australia are functionally illiterate.

Brewarrina is a town in a rural northwest NSW town with a majority Aboriginal population. Filming students taking part in a 13-week Literacy for Life Foundation course, director Erica Glynn captures the women and men, poverty and hardship, friendship and humour behind the sobering statistics.

Raw and heartfelt, but often funny, In My Own Words follows the journey of adult Aboriginal English language students and their teachers as they discover the profoundly transformative power of reading and writing for the first time in their lives.

Join us for this inspiring and powerful evening of film, live music, chocolate tasting and a delicious Indian buffet dinner!

LIVE MUSIC - Kym Staton


Kym Staton has been serenading audiences in cafes, bars, pubs and other small venues as a singer/songwriter since 2012 and has performed more than three-hundred gigs at intimate venues around Sydney and Melbourne - including Bar 303, The Factory Theatre, The Newsagency, Newtown Social Club, Dome Bar, The White Horse, Broadway Lounge, Govindas Movie Room, Loop Project Space and countless other intimate venues, honing his skills and stagecraft.

He has a unique sound both exotic and earthy, and a wide and eclectic repertoire of blues, jazz and folk covers, weird old songs and unusual originals. His rare rock tenor voice goes from subtle to soaring in a heartbeat, and the exquisite interplay of his captivating vocals and a deft touch on his telecaster and acoustic guitar must to be heard to be believed.

Check out some of Kym's music on his youtube channel:

Kym Staton is currently preparing to record his live cafe album later this year, which will document his past five years of intimate live performances and expansive repertoire.
