Side Walks

Side Walks was a dynamic, one-day celebration of storytelling in its various forms held across Northbridge and the Perth CBD on 5 October 2019. Funded by the City of Perth, Side Walks brought together artists, writers, journalists, and poets to present six unique events in venues both usual and unusual.

 

Jay Anderson, Jaini Shah, Janet Carter and Serenity Wilson explore the challenges and triumphs of the Perth LGBTQIA+ community.
Mani Gomes, Lisa Longman and Shenali Perera from The Young Boxing Woman Project weave personal stories with socio-political commentary to discuss the practice of claiming space.
Together with Sisonke Msimang, Ron Bradfield Jr draws upon cultural notions important to Bardi peoples to explore how a collision of cultures shaped his journey into manhood.
Tinashe Jakwa, Alicia Tuckerman, and Raphael Farmer discuss the pivotal books of their lives.
