Side Walks - Listen and Learn

Saturday October 5, 2019
15:45 - 16:30

Side Walks is a dynamic, one-day celebration of storytelling in its various forms across Northbridge and the Perth CBD. Bringing together artists, writers, journalists and poets from across multiple disciplines, Side Walks presents six free unique events in venues both usual and unusual. From poetry to crime writing, literature to oral storytelling, these engaging events will inspire, challenge, and delight.

We are joined by Marion Kickett and two academics from Curtin University’s Centre for Aboriginal Studies in a candid discussion about storytelling.

Marion will lead the discussion on storytelling in academic spaces, drawing from life experiences to make sense of complex issues. Join us in a safe space to listen and learn from three important members of our community.
