Turning the Tide – Indigenous Australian writers and thinkers

24 May 2013

The Sydney School of Education and Social Work's annual Indigenous Australian Writers and Thinkers event. A potentially explosive event on the state of Indigenous Australian literature. Peter Minter leads a discussion with Lionel Fogarty, Jeanine Leane and Melissa Lucashenko. These searingly talented writers read from their work and consider: Does being a writer construct identity, indigenous or otherwise? Is their writing political and should it be?

They’ll throw a collective molotov cocktail of ideas into the ‘canon’ and decide if it has been hamstrung by all or some of these notions.

There is no booking for this event, it's on a first-come, first-served basis.

Turning the Tide will be held in the Sydney Writers' Festival precinct at Sydney Dance 2, Pier 4/5, Hickson Road, Walsh Bay.
