Thank you Brisbane for joining us this week in which should have seen us delivering our 58th Brisbane Writers Festival.
This is a week to celebrate the reasons why the Arts are so vitally important to our existence. It is a week to reflect, connect and dream.
What 2020 is showing us is that we need each other. Our happiness and sanity depend on our connections.
With the ongoing concerns of this pandemic and the social upheaval we are all navigating in various ways, we will need to look after ourselves and each other with kindness for some time to come.
If there’s any beauty to be found in these tumultuous times, It’s the possibility of being pushed into a place of pure creation.
With this in mind, we have invited 14 artists who are well versed in the realms of creation to present 7 days of readings, poetry, art and dance that encapsulates awe, wonder, connection, community and reverence for the natural world.
We hope you connect with their creations, we hope it gives you space to dream, we hope you stay safe and well.
Keep on creating, Brisbane.
Rachel Fry - BWF Artistic Director
