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.

Spring Fling

2 – 11 November 2022

We are thrilled to partner with The Wheeler Centre for three exciting First Nations focused events in Spring Fling: A Short Series of Big Ideas. A delectable picnic spread of 20+ events running for over 10 days, we’re among over 60 leading thinkers, writers and creators from Australia and abroad.

Spring Fling celebrates the transformative power of storytelling and conversation to reinvigorate our minds, renew our perceptions and let our imaginations flourish. Blak & Bright are super proud to be involved.

More information to be released soon…

Spring Fling is supported by the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund, a Victorian Government and City of Melbourne partnership.
