Blak & Bright First Nations Literary Festival acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the sacred lands on which we work. We pay our respects to the people of the Kulin Nations and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, past present and future.

We recognise all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first storytellers; and that knowledge transfer through storytelling is imbedded in the very DNA of this Country.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices or names of deceased persons in photographs, film, audio recordings or printed material.

Borrow A Living Book

28 August 2022, 2pm-3pm

Sit down with a local Bundjalung Elder who will share rich stories of their lived experience. A Blak & Bright favourite, this cross-cultural conversation embraces the space and is an inspiring ray of Blak sunshine. Grab a cup of tea and join us in the garden of the Brunswick Picture House.

Limited sessions available, three people maximum per session.

Borrow A Living Book on Arakwal Country is presented in partnership with Blak & Bright, curated by Jane Harrison.
