Australia’s First Nations people are the country’s first memory holders and storytellers. However, their stories are often left unheard. Join three First Nations writers, Elfie Shiosaki, Jarrad Travers, and Cass Lynch, as they come together to discuss the power of language, storytelling, and poetry in capturing testimonies and rebuilding communities.
