Our opening night extravaganza sets the tone for the week to follow, with three extraordinary writers reflecting on the changed, changing and changeable nature of their minds over their careers. Award-winning Yankunytjatjara poet, author and memoirist Ali Cobby Eckermann (Inside My Mother), Bidjara and Birri Gubba Juru and author, academic and advocate Jackie Huggins (Sister Girl and Jack of Hearts: QX11594), and Yuwaalaraay musician and author Nardi Simpson (Song of the Crocodile) are complex and compassionate artists of rare strength and power. Kick off a week of storytelling, argument, knowledge and sharing that promises transformation, inspiration and persuasion.

Supported by the City of Sydney.
