Closing Address & Last Word

Christine Jackman has spent her career as an investigative journalist observing, examining, and writing about our world at a frantic pace. We must, however, make time to pause... to breathe... to introspect. With an enquiring and analytical mind, Christine seeks these moments of quiet in our busy world to ask, where to from here?Following their First Word address, Ellen van Neerven delivers the Last Word of the Brisbane Writers Festival, looking ahead to our 60th anniversary in 2022. Ellen closes our program with a First Nations perspective on prominent themes and ideas from our Festival conversations.

Join us immediately following the presentations for a glass of wine and canap├ęs, which are included in the ticket price.
