Theatre Works presents
First Stories Festival
28 FEBRUARY - 7 MARCH
The week-long inaugural program in 2022 aims to empower emerging First Nations writers to find their voice in their own way.
Each of the 5 selected writers will bring a dream project to work on throughout the week, with the opportunity to share with the group, get dramaturgical advice for their piece, and explore new methods to inspire their writing practice. Participating writers (including regional and interstate) will be paid MEAA rates for their time.
The festival is led by industry professionals Brittanie Shipway and Sermsah Bin Saad, and will feature sessions from esteemed creative mentors including dramaturg Jane Harrison, Mitch Tambo, Uncle Jack Charles and Kamarra Bell-Wykes.
“It is important to focus on the next generation and make sure storytelling can flourish.”
- Wesley Enoch
