International travel may be restricted this year, but that doesn’t mean innovative partnerships with our valued friends in the network of global literature festivals can’t continue. Thanks to the support of the Australian High Commission, we’re delighted to be working in partnership with Melbourne Writers Festival as part of the British Council’s UK/Australia Season 2021-22.
Flock is a brilliant new anthology showcasing some of the finest short stories by First Nations writers from the last 25 years. A tableau of narratives spanning elegies for Country and reflections on colonial dispossession, it calls to attention the ongoing resonance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander storytelling across generations. In a panel devised by MWF First Nations Curator Bridget Caldwell-Bright, Bryan Andy speaks with Mykaela Saunders and Adam Thompson about their contributions to a vital new collection.
Event supported by Australia High Commission.
