Bunuru Social Impact Summit, Wednesday 13 March 2024 Poolgarla Parkland, Kaarta Kooma, Kings Park

I’m so looking forward to this fabulous event, the Bunuru Social Impact Summit. The Summit will bring together diverse thought leaders, change-makers, artists, and innovators from across Western Australia. They will present their unique perspectives, experiences, and insights to explore how Aboriginal culture has, since colonialism, gone from surviving to thriving. For 2024, our theme is Culture: Survival, Resilience, Strength & Celebration. 2024 also marks five years since the inception of Danjoo Koorliny, the halfway point of a 10-year journey towards the 2029 bicentenary.

Fabulous Writers’ Weekend at Perth Festival ~ Literature & Ideas

What a wonderful weekend it was. I’m still buzzing with the excitement of listening to some amazing authors talk about their latest books. Some of my favourites were David Allan Patale, Joshua Kemp, Natasha Lester, Hannah Kent ... so many more. The finale of my weekend was listening to the fabulously funny Judith Lucy, what a way to finish a perfect weekend.
