SA Writers at Tarnanthi Festival Farewell

Last year, together with the Art Gallery of South Australia, and the SA First Nations Writers Group, we invited Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers living in South Australia to take part in a series of paid writing commissions for Tarnanthi.

Inspired by the Tarnanthi exhibition, the writers have been developing responses in a multitude of forms as an addition to the ongoing dialogue that is Tarnanthi. Hear poetry, essay excerpts and much more from these prolific writers in the exhibition space for an added perspective on the powerful works, held as part of the Tarnanthi Festival Farewell event at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
