Message from the Festival Director

Traditionally our stories have told of the changing seasons, the sources of foodstuffs and lore. They are metaphorical, spiritual and social – when different mobs meet, stories are exchanged. Our storytelling has evolved and now encompasses different genres and exquisite forms: poetic, theatrical, spoken word, songs, fiction and non-fiction. Our authors rank up there with the finest, winning prestigious awards and read voraciously all around the world.

We have many stories to be shared: funny, poignant, uplifting and fierce, stories that enrich all of our lives. Spanning four days, let’s read Blak, hear Blak and celebrate Blak stories.
