Emerging practitioners from the Centre’s Indian Ocean Mentoring project read from creative works in progress, focussing on identity, place and belonging. With Priya Kahlon, Raihanaty A Jalil & Rushil D’Cruz.

Funded by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, the Indian Ocean Mentoring project focuses on nurturing early and emerging writers of Indian Ocean heritage residing in WA. With the aim to support culturally diverse voices in the writing sector, we hope to inspire empathy and challenge dominant views.

This event is free but registration is essential! Please RSVP via Perth Festival.

Raihanaty A Jalil is a ‘jack of all trades’—over the years, she has been known as a high school teacher, a trader, hoon, poet, rapper, trainer and speaker. She is active in community organisations including being Secretary and Vice President of The Muslim Women's Support Centre (WA) Inc, and she works on writing projects, including her first novel.

Priya Kahlon

Priya Kahlon is an Indian Australian poet who was selected to be part of the Indian Ocean mentorship program for emerging writers. Priya’s poetry explores the ideas of identity, belonging and the use of language to break free from the structure and expectations of modern society.
